Default George Linder-House Fire

I am sorry to deliver the news that famed boat designer and creator of many of the APBA tech and class rules, George Linder, suffered 2nd degree burns on the upper part of his body in a house fire on Sunday. George was injured when, after assuring his family's safety, he re-entered the burning house to attempt to rescue his Rottweiler, Ginger. This is typical of the guy I've known and called friend for over 35 years.

George is currently in the hospital, but should be released shortly and is expected to make a complete recovery........ Thank God.

I am sorry for the loss George. I hope you and your family are all well again very soon. I hate to ask, did Ginger make it out safely? Dogs are such a big part of many of our lives. I hope she did!

Sadly, Ginger was lost....... a few seconds more and George might have been also.
