The Lexington Fire Department honored three of its female firefighters Wednesday after the trio made department history.

Captain Maria Roberts, Firefighter Amanda Arbogast and Firefighter Sarah McGill responded to a mulch fire on September 5th.

Roberts says, "When we got dispatched, I turned to them and said you guys know that we're making history right now. And they pretty much looked at me questioningly. They were really concentrating more on what it was we were going to do, and I was pretty sure this hadn't been done before."

It was the first time that an all-female crew went on a fire run in Lexington.

The women were recognized at Fire Station #1 on East Third Street.
