The following was provided by the Wakefield Fire Department:
Wakefield Fire Chief Michael Sullivan recently read the book Fire to
Jane Ellis' third grade class at St. Joseph School.
Written by Jessie
Haas, Fire is a true story of how a family's farm home in Vermont burned
a long time ago and the safety procedures the family used that enabled
all of them stay alive. Material things were lost but the people and
animals were all safe. The people in the village all work together as
community to help the family rebuild. It was wonderful to see that even
in our world of computers, the class absolutely loved listening to Chief
Sullivan read to them and they used their imaginations to picture in
their minds what was described in the book.
