There were several fires around our area yesterday!

Required response from two counties. Sacramento has had a problem with arsonist in their area, too.

"...unexpected arrival of off-duty Capay Valley Fire Department firefighter Craig Hollis."

Convenient? I would like to know if many of the firefighters, part timers, only get paid when they or their equipment is used?

Your theory is pure horseshit. This guy was with his child, exited the freeway and went to work. He put himself in harm's way to help evacuate folks who were also in harm's way. Why don't you crawl back under rock.

Besides the fact that Mr Hollis is a Yolo County fiefighter, doesnt get paid to respond in an off-duty incident such as this. So please, do crawl back under your rock, and keep your comments to yourelf, jackass!

You are a real kill-joy. Congrats. You turned a feel-good story (which could have had a terrible ending) and squashed it by being synical. Yes, I realize there are some fire fighters who are 'firebugs', but this guy was out with his little boy heading to Guinda. Midway Road is not a stone's throw to Guinda. This guy did the right thing.

If you want to come across as a person whose glass is half empty, you need to pick your timing (and story) better.
