The History of D.C. on Fire

You may have seen stories about fires in the District on NBCWashington.com from time to time, and now some of those fires have been chronicled in a new pictorial history book, "Fires to Remember."

The Friendship Fire Association Museum compiled the book as a tribute to the more than 2,000 men and women who serve the D.C. Fire and EMS Department and those that came before them.

Inside are more than 350 pictures depicting some of the biggest and most memorable fire and rescue related events in the nation’s capital over the past 150 years. It also follows a chronological history of the Fire and EMS Department from its inception in the 1800s through present day and remembers those who lost their lives in the line of duty.

The book retails for $44.95 and is available through M.T. Publishing Company or on Amazon.com. A portion of the book’s proceeds will benefit the D.C. Fire & EMS Museum.
