On this day in Columbus Fire history- August 27, 1912- Columbus fireman Charles E. Palmer of Station No 7 was learning how to operate a new Seagrave fire truck. The Seagrave fire truck was struck in the rear by a streetcar that was crossing the Broad street bridge. F.F. Palmer was thrown from the truck and killed instantly as he was runover. He was 35 years old and had only been fireman for 2 years. He left behind a wife and 4 year old son. His son Harry would grow up to be a reporter for the Dispatch. He knew first hand what it was like growing up without a father when he wrote the lead story in February of 1936 for the Columbus Dispatch describing the deaths of 5 Columbus firemen who died in the line of duty at the Odd Fellows fire. Rest in peace firefighter Palmer. Information; courtesy of Chris Klein
