Why should someone else have to pay it for him?? He knew there was a fee. He failed to pay it before. In a 10 year period, he had a total of 4 fires including this one. In that same 10 year period, he paid it 8 other times. So NO, someone else (man, woman, or the dammed AFLAC duck) shouldn't have paid it for him. It's called RESPONSIBILITY. And it was his.
cause under obama you will pay for him and his health. it's called CHARITY

Ummm, no. He's a Goodyear retiree with full benefits, which includes insurance. And Nobama won't be president forever. In this man's case, it's called LAZINESS. It's a simple case of, if you want the CITY fire Dept to come to your house you have two choices: pay the damn fee or move inside the city limits.

Obion County has no Fire Department. These firefighters are volunteers for the City of South Fulton.. That Fire Department is supported by City taxes and offered fire service to the County residents for a fee of $75/year. If you were not the ignorant one, you would know that. But you go ahead and prove your ignorance by making knee-jerk posts when you have no idea about the facts of the case.
RIP

In this case it weas the childs fault. this is what happens when you let your grandson star burning trash and he leaves it unattended to go in and shower.And again Obion county has no provision in property taxes for fire protection because they do not have a fire department. How ignorant are you anyway?

Have a car accident then go try to take out insurance to cover the accident you've already had. Same thing with the house that burned. You don't get services you didn't pay for.

Maybe you should read the facts before spouting off. Obion County has no fire department. The city of South Fulton provided the service for a fee of $75/ year. Incidentally the city firefighters are also volunteers. they are not paid.

----------
"United States[edit]

"A volunteer firefighter stands to the edge of a road.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, 69 percent of firefighters in the United States are volunteers.[1] The National Volunteer Fire Council represents the fire and emergency services on a national level, providing advocacy, information, resources, and programs to support volunteer first responders. The NVFC includes 49 state based firefighter associations such as the Firemen's Association of the State of New York (FASNY) which provides information, education and training for the volunteer fire and emergency medical services throughout New York State.

In the United States, the Department of Labor classifies volunteer firefighters as firefighters that receive no compensation or nominal fees up to 20% of the compensation a full-time firefighter would receive in the same capacity.[2] The DOL allows volunteer firefighters to receive benefits such as worker's compensation, health insurance, life insurance, disability insurance, pension plans, length of service awards, and property tax relief. DOL defined volunteer firefighters may be paid nominal fees on a per call basis, per shift basis, or various service requirements, but may not be compensated based on productivity such as with an hourly wage.

The terms "part paid" and "paid on-call" refers to firefighters that are receiving some compensation less than the compensation a full-time firefighter would receive. It may often refer to volunteer firefighters that do not qualify as volunteers under the United States Department of Labor. They may also volunteer time for training, public education, fundraising, and other non-emergency department related activities."

This is why you are the most ignorant poster on topix.

As always your reading comprehension is lacking. Quoted from your post:

"DOL defined volunteer firefighters "MAY" be paid nominal fees on a per call basis, per shift basis, or various service requirements, but may not be compensated based on productivity such as with an hourly wage."

Your own source states that they MAY be paid.

Not all volunteers are paid. I was not. Not for training, calls, or even basic equipment.

These are not volunteer firemen. These are firemen who work for the city of South Fulton. They are city workers(just like the police department), not county employees. The fire trucks say South Fulton Fire Dept, not Obion County Fire Dept. I bet if some of you checked, your county has the same type of policy, I know mine does because we don't have a county fire department. Some cities will cover up to a mile outside of the firebox, but this man lived way outside of a mile.

WJ, I thought I read or heard in one of the interviews where they were volunteers at the time, but since you are local to this story, I will concede to your knowledge on the matter.
However this side tracks from the real reason for this loss. As you said, the County has no Fire Department. The City provides this servide to those who pay the fee and has for decades. Mr Cranick did not pay the fee, waited too long to call and suffered the consequences. His fault, his loss.
