Posted on August 31, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

Henry Clay High School chemistry students extinguished fires on April 26, 1950, at the Lexington Fire Department’s central fire station. The fires were set for a lecture and demonstration on fire prevention. The lesson started with students riding from the school to the fire station and included lessons on proper use of fire extinguishers. At left, boys extinguished an oil fire, while the girls fought a paper-and-wood fire. Published April 27, 1950, in the Lexington Herald. Herald-Leader Archive Photo
