Forrest Howard, Sebring’s fire chief in the 1940s and 1950s, is said to still roam the halls of his favorite fire station. Modern day firefighters swear they see him in the bunk area, and they occasionally smell faint scents of his much-beloved cigars.

  1. This is a great story about my grandfather. The firemen there tell me it is true all the time. My grandfather however smoked Pall Mall cigarettes his entire life. They are brown, long and have no filter. Can you make that one change. He didn’t smoke cigars.
