Dearborn and Dearborn Heights firefighters worked to put out separate fires in both cities on Thanksgiving Day with the Heights firefighters taking it a step further and donating a Thanksgiving meal to one of the families impacted.
Kay Spoljaric, of Dearborn Heights, and her family lost their entire Thanksgiving dinner in a fire at her house.
After firefighters responded and put out the fire they returned with a turkey, pies, additional food items and cash, according to her Facebook post.
Spoljaric thanked the firefights for their generosity.
“I wish I could’ve gotten the names of the men that responded to my kitchen fire early this morning,” she wrote. “I really wish they could be acknowledged for their hard work and kind hearts.”
Firefighters from the C South Crew were the ones who responded to the fire, a Facebook post by the Dearborn Heights Firefighters read.
“We are your professional fire department,” the post said. “Here to serve this community, in any way we can. Twenty-four hours a day 365 days a year. These men went above and beyond to help someone in need, because they love being a part of this community.”
In Dearborn, firefighters worked to put out a fire at a multi-family house at Berkshire and Wyoming Avenue. Several people were inside the house on both levels at the time of the fire and were all able to evacuate.
High winds blew as firefighters extinguished the fire which was mostly burning on the second floor and attic of the house.
No injuries were reported.
