This is why I hate this forum. The establishment belongs to someone. They make their living there. So, what do these people do ? Use this to make fun of firemen, Polaks, bars, owners, etc. Truly classless people. Hope they recover quickly.
Thats the way it is around here and dont even try to assign hate where it belongs.

I miss the Rapp Lounge.

I heard the fire chief was just screaming on the radio all night....he was trying to get that girl firefighter to smoke his kielbasa but she was too busy playing with the hose between her legs.

Someone said the chief was screaming for about 10 minutes warning everyone he was going to smash the windows out.(after the fire was knocked down mind you).

the problem was that he wasnt getting any acknowledgment over the radio... mainly because there was only 5 firefighters there on scene.

That's because the call came in for "Uncles", and everyone responded to their own uncle's.

Ppl can say what they want about the Mills but we had lots of great times at the Rapp Lounge and you knew to follow the rules because the Mills PD would put it on you if you didnt.

And the couple of times i did have an issue (and you know i did) with the Mills PD they were fair to me and i was the one who was wrong.

Long live NYM and dont hate on them.

Hmmmmmnnnn, the Sunday night restaurant/tavern fire. Par for the course in this area. Make sure you get the weekend biz in your pocket and then do it at 130 AM on the most quiet night of the week. I have had an old barn on my property in Utica I have owned for decades and nobody has tried to do it which leads me to conclude the arson problem in Utica wasn't caused by a thrill seeker(s) but an owner looking to get out.This guy isnt going to rebuild shit and if he does it won't be in the birthplace of DWI enforcement in the Utica area.

I guess its all on the Fire Chief the fire was in the back of the building and after iit was out he had his men break all the windows on the 2nd floor in the front like 8 windows. Even if you were trying to clear the smoke a couple open windows would have been enough. Poor decision making. Wonder why not enough men showed up leadership issues no doubt

Simply opening a window the way it was made to be opened after the fire was out and safe would seem a prudent way to go.

I am sure poor fire training is an issue as well. Thankfully the fire in itself wasn't that bad as far as fires go, but then the damage the firemen did. Needless distruction, the Fire Trainer needs to look beyond putting out the fire. Rick Ulinski is the trainer you think he would have some insight on that being he works for a insurance company

Safe to say they truly earned the name The Toothless Foundation Savers! But hey maybe if they make their ridiculous 1970s tech air raid siren louder like FUFTY TIME LOUDER MAAAAN! they'll be much better and more important looking! Maybe some more shiny lights!

The windows were broken out because they were old and in bad shape. This way the insurance company will replace them at no cost to the owner.

He should call Adjusters International in Utica, I had a fire and hired them when National Grange insurance was giving me the run around.
