Well if you were taught then you should have came and helped. Our guyes did a wonderful job. They saved the lumber in the back 2 of the cars that were in the back shed and they kept the Propane tanks from going so why don't you stop bashing our guyes. They were out there for more than 6 hours last night and they all keep going up there today and checking it. If your so upset with the guyes why don't you put your name on here and go up there and put in your application see if your so much better than them. Oh and thank you to everyone who came out and helped, we wives appreciate all of the people who care for our guyes. So for everyone who carried coolers or gave us a cooler or ice thank you so much! By the way WOW it is our guyes job (that they volunteer to do by the way) to help your stupid ass not to kiss it. So stop bitchin and get up there and do something if you think your so much better than our wonderful fireman

No sexist comments. The firemen did what they could and thats their best. Oh, and you didnt put your name up here either guest. This site grosses me out. Why don't they have a damn bot monitoring the comments. One above mine is clearly sexist. Heres a puzzle: How many fires has Rector even been plagued with? Lumber Mill, Mechanics place, Old old movie place, probably more that I wasn't here for. Don't bash the firemen if you don't have a name guest.

No more than it was burning when they arrived, it had just gotten started, it should not have burned as bad as it did. It was as if they waited for the roof to burn through before they even started then they just sprayed it in the air.

since we have so much talent and expertise out there, i have an idea. Why don't we become part of the solution instead of the problem. If im not mistaken there are several open positions on the fire dept. I am sure you won't mind assiting and sharing all of your knowledge and expertise. All you have to do is give up time away from your family, friends, job, and anything else you enjoy and face whatever elements the weather has to offer at the given time, to respond to situations that the average person would run from. So instead of being part of the problem and doing nothing but run your mouth about things you only heard of, was'nt present for, and no nothing about. Be part of the solution. Share all of you talent, training, and expertise with the Rector VOLUNTEER Fire dept. Notice the emphasis on volunteer. They would be more than happy to have your talent with them.

Just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of you that worked so hard to keep things under control. I can guarentee not many people would close there place of business, skip their own childs birthday party, miss a wedding or put there own life on hold just to go and help fight a fire. I want to applaud All of those who worked so hard. For those of you standing back taking pictures and making comments of how things should be done, i feel real sorry for you because you were to busy finding fault when you could have asked if there was anything you could do to help. Pass out water, carry coolers, or anything else that would have been helpful. One thing about the firemans wives they work just as hard as the firemen do. They are there thru the whole thing passing out water, making sure the firemen are ok and helping those that have to stand and watch as the fire takes away everything they have worked hard for. I want to say ONCE AGAIN THANK YOU to our firemen and the wives from Rector and the surrounding areas. I for one Appreciate all you do and have done for our area.

Well I also applaud them for trying, but please go take some training, and as for stepping up to help most people are not allowed to help. At the fire on rose or park street a person was not told to shut off there water hose but was forced to. The person was spraying the house next door to keep the siding from melting. The person stated that a person on the fire dept forced them to shut off there hose stating that was there job, but they did not take up the effert to protect the building.

yeah they work so hard that most of them never even show up unless they are using it as an excuse to cheat on their wives or go out with their friends. I've seen them up there drinking beer out of coolers in the back of their trucks and goofing off while they are being paid a fee to train on the citys money. They are only on there to play around and drive too fast running people off the road. Yeah they sure are heros! Lmao!

Well, looks like you would fit right in if that is truly what is going on, so why don't you sign up? However, I truly have my doubts that you have a clue to the duties or sacrifices these guys make. Bravo boys, THANKS for all your efforts!!!

. I'd hope no one ever accuses me again of fitting in with that lot of jerks. They are just the losers that got picked on in school looking to be cool by having some twirly lights on their ride so they can play important when they don't want to go to their real jobs and sorry ass real lives.

I was in a restaurant in your town when the firemen were called to the fire in your town saturday night. The firemen who was there (who I found out was your firechief)wasted no time responding,it seemed that the fire trucks were rolling within seconds of the alarm sounding. we could see the smoke and flames from the restaurant when the alarm went off so the fire must have been going pretty good from the start. the lady that was there (who I found out was his wife) wasted no time asking two ladies in the restaurant to go get ice, water and cooler for the firemen, she was then on the phone talking to someone about setting up a rehab place for the firemen she told the person to check the direction of the wind so the rehab would be out of the smoke, and to make sure to find the ambulance so they would be together and she called the ambulance and told them who to meet. We could hear what was being said by the firemen because we could hear the ladys radio, they immediately ask for other fire departments, utilities and they even contacted the rail road they were telling where to set up and what to do to everyone responding to help the guy talking seemed to know what he needed and what needed to do (maybe he went to a class and learned that stuff)we finished our meal and being curious people went to watch like many others in your town. spraying water in the air, those are called arial (spell?) trucks thats how they work spraying over and further than someone on the ground with a hose even i know that and i don't have training, but that fire had firemen all around it and i never seen anyone standing back or not doing what they could and yes i saw those ladies helping those firemen and i saw others bring them water and ice did i see you? I came to this site [topix every town has one) to praise your firemen and community and to see some of this makes me sick to my stomach. To the community of Rector that i saw saturday Great job!!! you should be proud maybe you could teach a class on community service to other towns (and those of you who want to talk trash can come and learn) Firemen you may have lost one building but you saved so many others and from the news reports no one was hurt or died so that in itself is the biggest save of all. God Bless
