On this day in Columbus Fire history- A sad day in Columbus Fire history. On this day we lost two firefighters in the line of duty (different years) this is James Cheeseman of Engine House #5. He was killed on July 25,1925 after he was thrown from pumper #5 when a streetcar struck them at the intersection of Parsons and Thurman Ave. James was 42 years old. This accident also took the life of fireman Carl Schroeder who died a few weeks later of his injuries on September 3rd, 1925.Information; courtesy of Chris Klein
