Mass. firefighters douse fire, replace dinner
BOSTON -- A group of Boston firefighters didn't just put out a kitchen fire that ruined Thanksgiving dinner. They replaced Thanksgiving dinner.
Firefighters from the Chestnut Hill Avenue station put out an oven fire at Kathy Woods-Georgopoulos' apartment on Thursday, but not before the turkey was charred along with most of the kitchen.
But they returned later with turkey, stuffing and eight pies.
Firefighter Marco Molina told the Boston Herald that sharing their meal seemed like "the right thing to do."
Woods-Georgopoulos said she cried when the firefighters brought the meal, and cried the next day when she thought about it. She called it a "selfless" act, and said her family plans to do something nice to return the favor.
