have you ever fought a fire? have you ever been the one running around pulling hoses, hooking up to hydrants? were you there? so unless you know what you are talking about and know what these men & women go through to fight a fire and try to save lives and belongings, putting their own lives on the line, eating cold meals, lack of sleep or no sleep at all, missing family gatherings, holidays with little to NO pay at all because of these people are VOLUNTEERS, to protect ungrateful people like you......maybe you should go to Marion FD tomorrow and talk to the Asst Chief and talk to him before you start running off at the mouth!!!!

That place was a dump. Very sad that someone lost their home, but maybe its a chance for better things for them.

Have you ever been in the shoes of a fireman. Have you ever lent your hand to save someones life in a burning structure fire. I doubt it, before you go saying they are wanna-be fireman talk a walk in their shoes. Those same so called wanna-be fireman would be the ones to put out the fire in your home if you had one. You should be thankful that there are men and women out there that will risk their lives to save stupid ass people like you. You are so fucking close minded its not even funny. My husband and the other men and women of the various fire departments are the most admirable people in the county so go suck a big one!

Why don't you consider what it takes for them to produce water to put out the flames. Have you considered that the hoses don't unroll themselves, the hydrants don't magically unlock and start gushing water. All this and more takes man power and that man power is the many men and women that dedicate their time and lives to save those of others. Consider what it takes. I bet you all the money in the world that 25 min time was not the response time to the structure fire. Once dispatch receives the call, the department is alerted. then someone has to get the trucks, put on gear, unroll hoses and all. 25 min would be the time it took to do all that to be able to spray water.

Last I heard someone had set propane tanks ablaze in the back of the storage shed. Many suspects but currently no one is being charged

When I heard the first siren (when they stopped at the scene), I looked out and the fire was already going strong. It must have been burning a bit before someone called it in.

Ignore the stupid clueless posters who put down any of our emergency response folks or LEO. They are clearly ignorant of what what these men and women face when they respond to a call.
I totally see where you are coming from but im sure you understand how annoying it is to see people bash the men and women that save lives. I guess its like the saying haters make you famous. People bashing firefighters are probably just jealous because no one associates their name with something admirable

You may not now it but just about every firefight in Marion and McDowell county are volunteers. They come from home leaving their family and meals on the table, some times sitting down at a restraint and ordering and never get to eat it. But wait a minute if someone sees a fire truck at a restraint or grocery store you have something to say about that. Maybe the town and the county just needs to raise everyone taxes and put a full time crew in every station 24-7

The news said the home was vacant. But, EVERYTIME I would go by there there was always a ton of cars at the house. & if you were coming from like west court store you'd have to dodge the vehicles that were parked out in the road.
