She's 5 foot 1, 133 pounds and people often tell her how she looks like a little kid when she's decked out in her firefighter's uniform.
But Miranda McGinn is not a little child. She's a 1999 Western Reserve High School graduate and has been a certified firefighter for at least three years, nearly one year with the Townsend Township Fire Department.
McGinn said she's part of a brotherhood -- and wouldn't have it any other way.
"I actually love" being a firefighter, she said. "I can't think of anything else that I would rather do in my spare time."
The Townsend Township Fire Department, led by McGinn's father Al, who is chief, is all-volunteer. The department covers Townsend and Hartland townships.
