I heard the firemen didn't know where the fire hydrant was when they got there. AND,
I heard that the county fire truck showed up first and said they didn't have any water intheir truck.
The first car to show up was a county sheriff's car as they got there before the police or a fire truck.
Also I heard there were some local hero's who pulled a man out of his house at the corner!!

Well there Archie Bunker, you heard wrong. The house was vacant as it had just sold last week in a auction. I had a carport that was struck by lightning causing the house to catch fire. The house next to it just had minor damage. No one was injured. There were several fire trucks on scene and the county truck came last. There were also several city cops as well as sheriffs cars.
It was just a bad deal but thankful no one was injured.

read the fort scott tribune all you critics.

I will quote it now,
"There were no injuries caused by the blaze. The house at 420 S. Eddy, which sustained an estimated $25,000 in damage, was vacant. Ballou said he believed the house had just been sold and no one was living in it at the time. He said that a couple of passers-by noticed the smoke and woke up the gentleman living at 424 S. Eddy."(so there was an inhabitant who was in danger!)

and," but no area residents recalled any lightning around the time of the fire."(Notice it implies lightning was NOT the cause)

And last to "neighbor" in Wichita, a rural fire dept truck did show up first, then left because their tank was only half filled with water as reported to me by my brother who lives just few doors down and witnessed this. What did you see from Wichita?

unfortunately I can only say,"I heard" because I was not there. I was at home with my wife,daughter and two grandchildren and in bed by 10:30pm. however my brother and a bunch of guys were there and I guess were playing pool in a house directly across the street.
Perhaps the paper should ask them what they saw.

hey archie bunker, i know personally because i worked the scene jackass, City Fire showed up first on Scene then Mutual aid was called, No Rural Truck was first on scene dipshit that is how MUTUAL AID Works, City Fire Toned out Scott Township! So before you run your mouth get your fact's right. and if a Rural Truck was on that scene first they would infact be in trouble for Call jumping on city's call so shut your damn mouth because you infact don't know one damn thing about it.

will the real archie bunker please stand up?

I went to the Fire Department(check lobby video at 11am today I am wearing a military issue boonie hat and have a tape measurer on my left hip) to speak with the chief of the fire department with copies of this message board. I feel it is necessary now that one of his has chose to make it personal and act in a threatening and intimidating manner.
I hear the Fire chief Mr Ballou is a very competent and respected man among his peers, so I have no problem speaking directly with him, and he will certainly have my name.

I am most disturbed by firefighters claim that if the rural fire department showed up first they would be in trouble if they tried to put out the fire before the FS fire department got there.
Something just ain't right with that picture.

first off archie,

you know nothing about the situation and are going on speculation

Rural Department's can't just hear a call on the scanner and run to it. They have to be dispatched for Mutual Aid. And i am positive their would't be a truck pull up with out any water in it at all as all Trucks are refilled and taken care of after each call is done with.

second of all city fire was first on scene and they asked for MUTUAL AID and had scott township toned out.

No one was rescued or pulled out. You know nothing of the situation you weren't their so you need to stop talking and running a much of things. You know nothing about it all and you need to quit downing and running about rumors you have no proof on and know nothing about some of us live in the area and seen it so if i were you id just stop your making yourself look foolish.
