A little vent about the lack of humanity.
It was a sad day here on Rock St today, 3 families are now homeless, and a young girl lost her life in this tragedy. I watched a firefighter and a friend walk into that house today with no protective gear on trying to find a way. I later watched the same man cry over the lose. Of course the Facebook posts are just going crazy. I really liked the ones blaming the firefighters for not doing more. Anyone that thinks that these men and women are not doing a good job, head right to your local fire department and do a better job then. Until then, thank them for putting their lives in danger for doing everything they can, but don't sit behind your computer and condemn them.

I survived a house fire as a 6 year old. I'm almost 62 now and the thought of a house fire still scares me silly. You couldn't pay me enough to do what a fireman does. And yet a good portion of the country is protected by volunteer fire departments. Amazing people, right up there with law enforcement and military personnel.

May God bless them and hold them safe.

I am literally 2 doors away from one of the FC's in my area. They have plenty of active members, but not many that can drive the truck. I am going to add to the small list of members that can drive the truck.

I always said our firefighters moved quick real quick, but after watching this unfold across the street from my house today, the few minutes it took for them to get here and move the truck 50 feet might as well have been an hour. 2 years ago, we went through a flood here, and most of these men and women went for 2 days with little to no rest. I am friends with most of them around here, I've drank many a beer with them, I've fought with some of them at times, but never will I ever condemn them for putting their lives in danger for the good of others.

Same thing should be said about police officers. Yes there are a few bad ones, but there are plenty more that make up for the bad ones.

Ever since 9-11 I have made it point to roll down my window and give a thumbs-up to the fire trucks as they go by, doenst matter if they are on a run or not.

Totally agree BMP. Much respect to firefighters, police, armed forces and teachers. They are the backbone of our society. Their respect and pay is often a huge disservice for their contribution to our communities. Also prayers to those families close to you in need.

I just saw on the news that the fire started from a cigarette being put in a 2nd floor trash can... and she was found in the attic. I'm assuming someone emptied their ashtray to soon. I pray this person can live with what has to be overwhelming grief at this point. A simple mistake and it had such profound consequences for the young girl.
Cop: Sir, have you been drinking? Driver: Why? Is there a fat girl in my backseat?

Lets just say the news left quite a bit of the details out and leave it at that. Lets just call this a terrible tragedy that could have so easily ended without any loss of life.The world is yours!

Sorry to hear about your tragedy bustedmp. Thanks for all the kind words towards Firemen from all of you guys. I work as a career firefighter and just last night we were first in on a fatal fire. Sad dealing with a family that has just lost someone so suddenly.
