Homeless? I don't think so, I doubt they're sleeping at a Pacem location this evening, or ever. Garbage man saves the day and the fire dept whines.

God bless the Red Cross for being there in a situation like this. It happens so much. They were an amazing comfort to my family when we lost our home in '03.

Ralph Martin & Melvin Johnson of County Waste of Virginia was the drivers that took the time to save these kids lives. I would like to say THANK YOU.

God bless the garbage truck drivers for waking up the students! And as one who has had a house fire, I appreciate all that the fire department does.
