City of Vandalia Division of Fire added 9 new photos.

In January 2000, a arson fire in a residential hall at Seton Hall University in New Jersey, killed 3 and injured 58. Fire survivors, Shawn Simons and Alvaro Llanos travel all over the county sharing their true story of friendship and survival in a program called "After the Fire". Their “After the Fire” program tells the inspiring story of freshman roommates proceeding from the devastating fire through the grueling medical treatment and into their life-affirming future. The search for the arsonists and elaborate conspiracy that nearly obscured the truth. Thanks to a local grant provided by the Miami Valley Firefighters Burn Foundation the Division of Fire’s Fire Prevention Bureau was able to bring the team to present their story to approximately 900 students and staff at VBHS this morning.

The team had time to answer more questions, take photos with the kids and to sign copies of their book during the lunch period at BHS.

Thanks to Mr. Luebbe and his staff for making time for this presentation today.
