Grove City Area Firefighter Dies from Injuries in the Line of Duty


I just wanted to pass on some sad news in my neck of the woods. On Friday, there was a fire in the borough of Grove City. One woman died in the fire and two firefighters were injured. One is okay with minor burns. The other died this morning at 5:55 in Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh.

The fighter was Brad Holmes of the Pine Township VFD. He was only 21. He was a senior at Slippery Rock University.

Please pray for the family – they are reeling at this time. Not only did they lose Brad, but Brad’s grandfather coincidentally died of heart failure on Friday.

I know there are some first responders that read my blog. As soon as I hear any funeral arrangements, I’ll be sure to pass them on.

Also pray for the others affected by the fire. The house was a duplex: a man and his girlfriend (the one who died) on one side, and a woman and her young child on the other side. They lost everything.

Different funds are being set up around town to aid all of the victims.

Thanks for your support.
