Frank Howard TV Cable, Inc. is suing the Salyersville Fire Department and the City of Salyersville for allegedly damaging television cable owned by the cable company during a training exercise.

The original complaint, filed by attorney Gordon B. Long on February 22, stated that the defendant was burning a residence on or about March 1, 2009 on Coal Branch as a training exercise, at which time a TV cable owned by Frank Howard TV Cable, Inc.

Jeffery Lovely, the attorney for the Salyersville Fire Department, filed an answer to the complaint on March 23, stating the claims are “barred by the applicable statute of limitations.”

The original complaint only named the Salyersville Fire Department as the defendant, but since that is a department of the City of Salyersville, the City was added in the amended complaint.

Frank Howard TV Cable, Inc. is asking for judgment against the defendants in the amount of $1,756, the cost of prosecuting the action and “any and all other relief to which this Plaintiff is justly and properly entitled.”

What a JOKE! LOL

i dont see how this is funny, i dont care much for rick but i bet if it was your property destroyed you would be going off and trying to sue, the fire dept is a joke the run around town pretending they know what they r doing but they really dont, all they do is run away town driving F D TRUCKS, i bet if wouldnt let them put they big auction on his cable n they didnt make all the money the spend or waste which ever u want to use, if they knew what they were doing they wouldnt have destroyed private property,

yes! one hell of a joke!---I live near and only one section of cable was damaged---about 100 ft. City should be responsible for this but this amount is unreasonable!
The fire dept was very neglectful and irresponsible in this action. Several homes were damaged because they did not adhere to necessary precausions and did not do things they were supposed to like firt taking the roof off the building---here me Paul?!

The fire department should be held accountable for their actions, same as you and I. If their is a law exempting them, it is probably unconstitutional & should be challenged. When the Government has more rights than you, you live in tearney.
