Familiarize yourself with the details before you post your knee-jerk reactions.

Which goes to show how much you do not know about the facts.
FACTS:
1. Their grandson started a trash fire during a burn ban then went in to take a shower leaving that fire unattended.
2. The trash fire started a grass fire which they fought themselves with a garden hose for two hours before it reached the shed next to the home. When the shed and mobile home caught fire, then and only then, they called 911. Have you ever seen how fast a trailer burns? It was beyond saving before they could respond. So they could not have saved anything.
3. The county has no FD so the city provides the service to paid subscribers only. This was this family's 4th fire in 10 years so they knew this policy. The city sends out 2 bills for the fee then follows up with phone calls. There is no way he "forgot". In fact on TV he said that he thought they would put the fire out even if he didn't pay, but he was wrong.
4. When the fire spread to the neighbors field, the FD responded because the neighbor paid the fee. They stayed to be sure it did not spread anymore.
5. They lost 3 dogs and a cat that were LOCKED in the shed. I think they could have moved them in 2 hours. Shoot in 2 hours they could have moved most everything out of a trailer.
6. The firemen should not risk their lives to save "stuff". There were no human lives at risk and the animals should never have been locked in the shed.

Like I said. Familiarize yourself with the details and not just a headline aimed at getting a knee-jerk response.

After burning for 2 hours, nothing could be saved. They did prevent it from spreading to the neighbor's house. Had the fire spread to next door, it would have cost him a lot more because he could have been sued. They didn't have enough water to put out the fire that had started to spread and Gene's fire too. Gene's property could not be saved. Enough of this SES(self entitlement syndrome) bullshit. People need to be accountable for their own actions. Is it sad that it happened?? Yes. But, Gene knew the chance he was taking by not paying the bill.

putting the fire out would only have made a bigger mess to clean up. nothing would have been saved. trailers burn too fast. here is an idea. you pay their fee for them. or are you too heartless?

first STOP YELLING. it is rude.
second. their pumper pumps 600 gpm. their tanker carries 3000 gallons. thats 5 minutes and they are out of water then an round trip to being more. you obviously know nothing about firefighting.
third. as i said before the ones who have no compassion are those like you who expect the firefighters to risk life for "stuff".
fourth. the firefighters were following orders they do not own the equipment. the city does. paid for by city taxpayers.
fifth. because of people like you, the city stopped responding to the county, leaving them with no protection. good job.
