No need to be rude, the folks on Delta Fire are some of the kindest nicest people you could ever meet. And they know what they are doing. Just like the other two mentioned in the article. Keeping the family that lost their home in my prayers tonight.

It was Steven and Shelly Schrum's house. Please put hands and feet to your prayers. The home was a total loss. Thank God no one was hurt!

Some people don't understand inter county relationships or respect the authority of the officers. Delta has a lot of very good firefighters. The simply truth of it is we called for mutual aid in accordance with the SOP's of our department. Oran responded with plenty of manpower and equippment. We didn't need anymore help. If we would have needed it we would have called for Delta.

There is nothing personal here. Although you seem to have a serious grudge. The only problem here is you need to quit trying stir up shit. For A man your age you sure act like 10 yr old kid. Grow up and mind your business.

You tell em Pyro, people just don't understand what you guys do and what you are risking. Thanks for being there when needed for people who need you. Thats to all three departments. Thanks.

Still praying for the Shrum family hope they get some much needed help, and hope everything works out ok.

they called in the chaffee fire dept and no one would respond. so they had oran fire dept come to the rescue. oran firefighters could't get FOUR water hydrants to open up to save that house. interesting huh?

I live around the corner and was on my way to the station before the first page tones where completed. I dont where you get your info but your way off. Also on the report from dispatch it clearly says that from time of dispatch to time on scene was a little over 2 minutes. Get your facts straight. Your an idiot.

Yes many of the hydrants in town need to be replaced. There will be a bind issue on the ballot in april to replace the hydrants, water lines and sewer lines. A lot of people have complained about the water in and things in town. Its time to put up or shut up so to speak. Pass the bonds and the problems will be solved.
