How the heck is this breaking news? Good lord, you patch people are idiots. What's next? BREAKING NEWS......RED LIGHT AT INTERSECTION CAUSES TRAFFIC TO STOP.

Why not start with all the follow up you promised us with city hall? Oh yeah, you have your head too far up their backside for them to hear your questions.

Actually I would put this as breaking news, it was an active fire with companies from Orland and Tinley responding in addition to Oak Forest. Oak Forest's CHIEF was also on scene (which isn't the case with most calls), and they were on scene for quite awhile searching for the source of smoke/heat.

Granted no tragedy occurred, and the house didn't burn down, but I think it still warranted coverage due to the amount of activity surrounding the house this afternoon. I much rather them use the alert for this than the football score updates of the past.

Fine. Put it up there until the FD leaves. I've see this dumbass site leave storm warning on the homepage for a week. He's just trying to make the site look busier instead f actually doing anything constructive for the residents.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
