Anyone know anything about Red Fire Gasoline? I have attached a picture of the patch I recently saw. I hadn’t seen this brand before and was curious to know if anyone had any info. Thanks!

Little difficult because of the generic search terms, but I found this. Apparently there was a red fire station in Canton, Ohio.

If you are more than just curious, you could contact Canton, Ohio historical society and they may have some old photos of the station. The matchbook cover has the address.

You could also search newspaper.com archive for Ohio newspapers and "red fire gasoline", may get a hit on old ads they did.

Thank you for your post, Paul. That matchbook is a really good start. When I add a patch to my collection I like to know a little bit about where the company was from and that’s mainly the reason for my question. Yeah I ran into the same thing searching that name on google. I searched images online and got a lot of red fire trucks and red gas cans, haha!

Yeah, the generic search terms really make it hard! When I hear about stations with cool names like this - "RED FIRE". I wonder if they had cool gas pump graphics.

Here's the place to call with that matchbook address:
