The San Diego Fire-Rescue Department hosted a 'History in the Making' reception Wednesday to mark 40 years since the department hired Lonnie Kitch, the city's first female firefighter.
"Our women have shown tremendous courage and dedication and have served our communities with distinction. They are excellent examples for future firefighters," said Fire Chief Brian Fennessy.
