Cedar Lake Fire Department
August 31, 2002 I spoke with Chief Dennis Wilkening of the Cedar Lake Fire Department . Since they responded to Lowell, I contacted them in an attempted to locate pictures or records from the 1952 train wreck. Chief Wilkening finally produced results, although not quite what I had been hoping for.
After pouring through the department's collection of photos, Chief Wilkening contacted me and advised that the photos they once had were taken by Jim Baker, a Lowell firefighter. All of Jim's photos are displayed on the website already, so I found no need to be redundent. Chief Wilkening also informed me that none of the Cedar Lake Firefighters who could have been down in Lowell that day.
I appreciate Chief Wilkening and the Cedar Lake Fire Department for taking the time to check back 50 years.
