Fire Inspector Harry L. Reese 2/2/1920
Updated On: Apr 14, 2013
Fire Inspector Harry L. Reese died February 2, 1920. Inspector Reese died as result of the influenza pandemic when during the course of his duties he became ill with the deadly virus and died. Many precautions were taken by the city at this time for example, public funerals were not allowed as it was feared the disease could be further spread.  However the required duties of fire inspector posed a great threat of exposure.
