Timothy Lombardi was sworn in as a firefighter and paramedic with the Bath Fire Department
Bath officials welcomed their newest firefighter Tuesday, a retired Cuyahoga Falls fire captain who wants to give back to his community. Timothy Lombardi took the oath of office as a part-time firefighter and paramedic. He's new to the Bath Fire Department, but not to its members. "Tim was my captain for a long time in the Falls," Fire Chief Walt Hower said. Lombardi, a 33-year firefighter and father of four, retired last year, giving him more time to devote to Bath Township.

"Tim's going to bring some experience in a lot of operations," Hower said.

Zuk has hired a general contractor to remove the debris and salvageable items, but doesn’t yet know whether to renovate or completely reconstruct the 120-year-old building. “Quite a bit of that building is fine,” said Cuyahoga Falls Fire Chief Paul Moledor. “I would be surprised if they would rip the whole building down, but that’s totally up to the insurance company and business owner.” Moledor said the total damage is estimated at…
