$46,188 given to families of 2 killed Toledo firefighters


The families of the two Toledo firefighters killed in a January apartment building fire have received $46,188 from a T-shirt fund-raiser organized by the Downtown Pub Club.

Bill Kline, a spokesman for the Pub Club, gave a check for that amount on Wednesday to the Toledo Firefighters Local 92 in honor of Stephen Machcinski and James Dickman.

Dan Desmond, vice president of Local 92, said the money will be given to the families of the fallen firefighters.

The seven bars and restaurants of the Pub Club sold T-shirts at $20 each through a Web site and at the businesses.

The families of each victim also received $2,800 that Local 92 received in donations and through fund-raisers, Mr. Desmond said.
