First Fatal Fire in History of Reminderville, 1998

For the first forty-three years of the villages existence there had not been a single fatality due to a fire, but that streak came to an end on May 5, 1998. The first fire fatalities were David and Jeanne Pappalardo of Regatta Trail. The blaze was confined to their downstairs bedroom and was caused by smoking in bed. They were survived by their two cats, who were found safe and sound in an upstairs room.
