Lancaster City firefighter Lieutenant Andre Kelley was badly burned in a fire back in February. Kelley was injured during a house fire trying to save a woman and a six year old, who both died in the fire. Monday,  a motorcycle ride  was dedicated to the Kelley family. Riders headed to Gettysburg for a re-dedication of the Friend to Friend Masonic Memorial decided they would dedicate the ride to Kelley. Their goal was to raise money for his family.

“They go out, they put their life in, when common sense says danger, they go into the danger, and occasionally they get hurt, when they get hurt we need to make sure we`re taking care of them properly,” says Noel Wenrich who took part in the ride

Since the fire, the city of Lancaster has rallied around the Kelley family with many fundraisers knowing that every little bit helps. Kelley is now home, and his family and friends say he’s ready to get back to work.
