A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
Findlay elementary school students went home with a special gift Monday - one that could save their lives.
This giveaway kicks off at the same time as National Fire Prevention Month. A total of 3,000 smoke detectors went home with students at Findlay City Schools. Local emergency crews say in order to keep the whole family safe, sometimes you have to start with the youngest member.
The Findlay Fire Department, along with the Hancock County Red Cross, made the rounds at three local elementary schools, including Northview Primary, handing out free smoke alarms, and teaching students the importance of being ready for the worst.
Firefighters gave students safety tips on what to do in case a fire ever sparks in their home. Officials say it's timely advice, just one month after five children and a father died in a house fire in Tiffin.
"It does bring it to the forefront when people see that or hear that, you know. They always pray and hope that it doesn't happen to somebody they know, but the reality is, fires happen every day in northwest Ohio, and unfortunately, there are homes now where there's kids that stay, that don't have a working smoke detector," said Capt. Jerry Greer with the FFD.
The smoke detectors were purchased primarily with a $7,500 donation from Walmart.
