This is so very wrong. It makes me sick to think of it.
Many others will probably suffer because some volunteer firefighters will understandably hesitate in some cases because of this. It was a particularly disgusting act.
The guy was a convicted killer and he's out in public again.......that is wrong right from the start.
What a sad thing to happen on Christmas Eve. May they rest in peace.....
On top of all the inherent dangers of the job, you get some a-hole shooting you. Amazing.
like we dont have enough to think about when responding....
R.I.P. brothers, we,ll take it from here
Terrible. Happens more often than we hear about much about. When I was installing a dispatch system for firefighters we put a hook into the police records system so that it displayed calls the cops had run at the address when a fire call came in.
I think I can safely say that career, paid-call or volunteer . . . it still doesn't matter . . . as now as in the past and as will be in the future . . . when the call goes out for help there will always be some that will go regardless of personal danger -- whether it be from a collapsing building, violent criminal, out of control driver or fire . . . it's either in you . . . or it isn't . . . and while tragic, events like this change nothing. Good always triumphs over evil.
That was my immediate reaction too Scott!
Yep, Jake said it pretty good. RIP brothers.
If we haven't said it lately jake and chief, we appreciate you guys. Can't imagine doing what you guys do.
Thanks BB, for all of us.
It was like a terrorist attack. Just horrendous. Those poor families.
I couldn't believe it when I read it yesterday. About an hour, hour and a half from us, probably driven past there before. I also heard his sister hasn't been found...at least the last I read. The poor families, the firefighters families and those that lost their homes (I heard 7 houses were lost?) all because some guy that shouldn't have been allowed out after beating his grandma to death with a hammer went all the way over the edge...
Last reports say that the sister still hasn't been found, and they have not yet been able to confirm that nobody else died in any of the other houses that burned.
Terrible,makes no sense.
Ugh this is just sickening.
