Captain Henry W. Hines 1/1/1912
Updated On: Mar 30, 2014

Captain Henry W. Hines of Engine Co. 4 died on January 1, 1912.  He responded to a fire in the Little England (near Ash St.) section which occurred on December 21 1911. He was driving the chief’s car, the only automobile in the department at that time, and got wet while fighting the fire. The ride back in the open car in the cold air combined with the wetness from the fire made him sick. He died as a result of complications from diphtheria and other illnesses direct from exposure at the fire.
