Great job to the NEW Crawfordsville Fire Chief!!!!!!!!!! Why would the only aerial truck be broke down and/or not working? Don't they test these things before a fire like this is going? What happened to saving the animals?(SOMEONE CALL PETA NOW!)Does the fire department send out personal to inspect these old buildings when they are not putting out fires? Maybe Barton should take over again!!!!!!!!!!
Maybe Barton should take over again. He certainly should! Why was he demoted in the first place? He did an outstanding job when the last fire occurred.

DEBBIE M- Outlaw fireworks again??? Have you listened any of the reports at all??? Although this is an devastating tragedy,( and yes, I've cried my eyes out all day about it!!) why are you so quick to condemn the fireworks stores?? ALSO, how can you say that the firemen didnt care enough about the animals to save them? I'm sure most of those firemen probably have pets of their own & obviously have a heart if they're in that line of work!!! Maybe they were in there doing other stuff like TRYING TO PUT THE FIRE OUT!!!! Happy snakes & sparklers to you!!

People like you are why stores like these keep live animals "for sale" in little glass cages. Shame on you for buying your fancy puppy from a pet store. If nobody bought animals from these places, they would stop carrying live animals.
If you had ever been in the store you would know that all the puppies and dogs and live animals were rescued from abusive owners. So before you go bashing and pointing fingers why don't you figure out what you are talking about.

i've been there a few times, while they DON'T get their puppies from puppy mills, they still charge WAY too much for them. It doesn't seem that if they cared that much to give them good homes that they would charge so much.
If i was a FF and i knew an entire store of fireworks was right next to me, i'd be thinking about my own neck and the necks of my fellow FF's before i would think about the lives of the animals. I'm sick over the loss over them, but you can't know the exact situation unless you were one of them.

Gerbils, many kittens, fish, and birds were killed according to WIBC. I feel horrible about this. May they rest in peace.:(
The firemen were inside but I guess they didn't care about the animals.
I'm not sure where the fire started, but fireworks stores should be outlawed again in Indiana. What was our General Assembly thinking of when they passed the bill allowing them?
Yeah lets lose firemen over gerbils. Debbie I seriously hope you dont vote or procreate.

How about after we ban fireworks we can ban owning dogs because we cant have anymore kids getting mauled by pitbulls?

And lets ban tax preperation centers because all that paper they have on hand is flamable! dumbass....

Why doesn't the media report on the thousands of July Fourth fireworks display all over America that went off without one problem. Why don't they report on the millions of big fireworks block parties where nobody was injured? Have one accident in California and that's all they will talk about for weeks. Just another way to slander fireworks

Happy safe next 4th of July.
