Thursday, March 1, 2018 by DANIEL HAMM in Local News

Allentown Fire Chief Lee Laubach Jr. and Arson K-9, Judge, were the hot items on the agenda Feb. 1 at the monthly meeting of AARP Chapter 5415.

The fire safety presentation at St. Timothy’s Church, Allentown, provided the senior citizens with information on how Judge can actually sniff out a potential fire before it begins.

Judge demonstrated his skills by sniffing through a line of aluminum cans in search of the one containing an accelerant.

When Judge found the accelerant, he indicated the find to Laubach and was rewarded with a treat.
