Firefighter Helps Rekindle Boy’s Collection

Young Ryan O’Connor is a huge Red Sox fan who built up a nice collection of memorabilia–until an awful Sunday in May.

Fire ripped through the family’s Longmeadow, Mass. home, ruining his collection.

No one was hurt, luckily, but Ryan’s collection was a melted mess.

A local firefighter took that loss personally.

WWLT in Springfield picks up the story from there.
