I* — This city of 15,800 thinks it has the oldest active firefighter in th* nation. And in his 59 years on the department, 81-year-old Joseph Heeney recalls h« missed only one bell alarm oft he some 2,000 sounded during those years. A case of pneumonia a few years back caused him to break his record. Recalling bis narrowest brush with death, Heeney said he and three other firefighters entered a basement during a 1933 fire. Without warning an upper floor collapsed, blocking their exit. Just as the quartet was about to give up hope of escape, a gas explosion blew them off their feet. When they regained consciousness, all four were sprawled in the street outside, injured, but not seriously, by the blast. Fire on Demand MAQUOKETA, Iowa Ufl — The volunteer fire department says the firemen need some old buildings which they may set ablaze in order to practice new fire-fighting methods. Anyone in the area having an old shed, barn or other structure he wishes to dispose of can get action by notifying the fire chief.
