On
October
20,
1929,
fire
originated at
a
an
oil-burning stove in a Lakeside cottage on Walnut
Avenue. A strong wind
shifted
the
flames
onto neighboring
buildings
threatening
the
entire
block.
Fire
departments from
Fremont,
Port
Clinton,
Marblehead,
and Sandusky were
requested
to
help save
the
community.
To
suppress the fire,
cottages
were
dynamited
to create
fire
breaks.
Dozens
of
cottages,
Lakeside's
Methodist
Episcopal Church
and the
printing office of the Peninsula News were consumed
by the fire. Fortunately,
the tragic fire resulted in no casualties or serious injuries.

The Lakeside Volunteer Fire Protective Association responded to both fire and medical emergencies on the Marblehead Peninsula for more than 100 years. It was founded in 1905, after a devastating fire that destroyed Lakeside's business district. In 1946, the Association began providing emergency medical aid. During their service, the Lakeside Volunteer Fire Protective Association progressed from hand-drawn chemical carts to the area's first heavy-duty fire and rescue truck. In 2013, the Association donated its assets to the newly-formed Danbury Township Volunteer Fire Department and passed into history.
