Brave firefighters prevent a catastrophe
Courage under fire
This image was caught by Express photographer Phil Mapstone of a firefighter attacking the early-morning blaze at the vacant furniture store building at 37 Bellefonte Avenue in downtown Lock Haven on Friday. Amid bitter cold, firefighters used and climbed four ladder trucks to man the spray guns and build a water curtain around the flames. This firefighter braves the shroud of heavy smoke an icy mist to help put the fire out and prevent it from spreading.
