    i used to live at 651bayside across from the old engine 48 house till they moved over onto fort st. near boyton middel school. in 1983. the guys were fun to hang out with when i was young . but for some reason i am still hooked on the old truck from back then and i miss captian bill with his side kicks mark, raulph, charlie. i have been looking on line to find some photos of the crew from 1982 too 1983 but had no luck. i used to have pics from the 1982 fire from the salt mine but those got lost in the move to toledo aswell as the other photos i had of the crew . i would like to see the photos if you please. thank you greg from toledo which i now live in. toledo fire departments dont have what it takes to do the job that you guys do in detroit.
