What makes it even worse is that the house that burned down belonged to a home inspector!! Wondering if he had smoke detectors in every room?? Glad no one was hurt though!!

If any of you were listening to the scanners like you say you wee then you would know there were crews inside the building doing searches. Not everyone can go rushing in the house all at the same time

John q has no clue on anything. All he does is run his mouth on watever he can find negative about the fire dept. Hes probable a disgruntle ex member that cdnt do the job so now he has to bash the fire dept. Grow up get a life and move on john q.

John q dont you have anything else to do besides bitch about the fire department? I mean, if your so worried about it, become a fire fighter. If you can do better, then do it. Get off your lazy ass and do something.

ok let me set you straight. I am not a disgruntled ex member. I am however a vetran firefighter with over forty years experience. a have worked as a paid firefighter/ medic for a few large city depts. and have also been a volunteer for several depts. in several different states. I am now in my mid seventys so as much as i would like like to due to my health and age i cant fight fires anymore. I listen to my scanner and if a call is close enough i go watch. and the call wednesday on center street was by far one the worst displays of firefighting ive ever seen. first off i timed it from when the call was dispatched untill the bismarck truck arrived on scene it was eleven minutes. then from the time they arrived on scene until water was flowing was six minutes, this is completley unacceptable no matter what the excuse might be. There were no crews in the house until park hills showed up and until then all the bismarck fire dept. did was stand in the front yard and watch the flames grow larger. I dont know anyone from the fire dept. or ex fire dept. but i do know the current chief is preventing very highly qualified firefighters from volunteering there services due to personal feelings against them. I think personally this chief needs to do the right thing for the comunnity and realize he is not thw man for the job and step down. I do have video of this fire and what happend on video on my phone and it will be shown to the mayor and if he doesnt feel action should be taken to do something about this group of idiots putting us in danger should be done i will take it to the newspaper and tv news if neccesary. this was a small fire that could have been contained to a small area if the propper steps had been taken by the fire dept. but instead it turned into a very large fire that most likely destryoid this house beyond repair.

I live a couple blocks away and when I heard the call I went to see what was going on. I got there about the same time the Bismarck fire dept got there. The bismarck fire man was having a hard time getting the hose off of the truck. Nothing much was going on except people standing around looking at the house until Park Hills dept arrived. Really something should be done about this before someone is seriously hurt. Oh by the way I guess Bismarck could not find the brush fire that was called out a few minutes ago. Hope Leadwood or Park Hills can help out.

He is not the only one that listens to the scanner. Since I was there it seems to me his times are pretty close to being accurate.
