I'd sue the living crap out of him. Some people think just because their relatives have a position of power; that they are exempt. That's what you get you moron. That little boy is a HERO alright. Town should do something nice for him like put him through college so someone in the family can use their brain.

So what did the fire Marshal do to you to get you so upset?

his father started a fire inadvertantly whilst burning weeds in his yard, not shooting fireworks into a preschool.

to the best of my knowledge this was not an act sanctioned by the fire marshal or any other member of SCFD.

i can only imagine the reaction of the Fire Marshal when recieving this call.

The Fire Marshal has risked for the lives and holdings of the residents of grant county fot a number of years.
His son rushed ahead of a wild grass fire to warn people in a threatened structure.
