Aid for firefighters
WARREN -- Two city firefighters injured in a house fire Dec. 31 will split $2,400 thanks to the 2nd annual poker run sponsored by Rural/Metro Ambulance of Youngstown.
A check for that amount was to be presented this morning to firefighters Nick Radich and Darryl Anderson.
Area firefighters and the public rode motorcycles July 22 to locations in Mahoning and Trumbull counties, picking up a card at each spot. Whoever had the best hands at the end of the run took home prizes. Raffles raised additional money.
Radich and Anderson were burned while fighting a blaze at the Williamsburg N.W. home of Janet Provitt, who died. Both men have returned to work.
