Two Firefighters Injured In Battling House Fire

Two firefighters were injured battling a house fire Monday afternoon in Kinston.

The fire on Chestnut Street was caused by food left unattended on the stove. Two city firefighters were taken to Lenoir Memorial Hospital and later released for what is being called minor injuries.

The fire department says the home suffered heavy fire and smoke damage. The smoke detector in the home did work.

    Al, for someone who was not going to "...dignify your comments with a response...", you've responded twice already. Whatever. If you want me to thank one of your "heroes", then I will glad to thank other uniformed persons, as well. I'll thank the mechanic at Jiffy Lube, or the clerk at McDonald's, or the doorman at The New York Hilton. You're absolutely right. I will use my freedom of speech right, and I will continue to infuriate you right wing, flag waving, soldier worshipping pundits with superior intellect and flawless logic.

    Oh and by the way voice one of the firefighters that you were mocking is my brother and he just got back from Iraq fighting for us and yes you too! How about just trying to be nice about things from time to time? I will forget your remarks and let it go. But you really need to thank a firefighter and any military person or Law enforcement officer you see. It makes them proud and happy to serve . God bless you Voice have a great day!

    Voice, I will not dignify your comments with a response. I am right wing and proud of it. I know this firefighter and it made me a little mad that you would say the stupid thing you said! I know it is your 1 st amendment right. I was not trying to impress you or anyone other jerk here on the postings. I was stating the truth. I hope you never have an emergency at all. But you need to watch what you say sometimes. As far as eating crow the way your man O Bama is doing us all including you my friend or should I say Comrade we will all be eating crow . I ll bet you are one of the morons who bought the hope and change thing . Hows that working for you ?? AS far as Hero we do our jobs because we care. Yes some of our egos are overblown but your pompous attitude shows how your are too, an over educated moron with little to do but put down the ones who might have to save your life! HAVE A GREAT DAY ! Oh and take your own advice if you don't like what you see you blow hard don't read it!

    Big Al, your flag waving, guilt inducing rhetoric does not impress me in the least. Mentioning President Obama is a typical right wing tactic. If you don't like the comments, use a little common sense and don't read them. "It makes my day to see jerks like you say the thing s you said here and then when you need someone like us you call all glad . You will eat these words like crow my friend!" That does not sound like a very professional attitude to me, "my friend". Maybe if you "heroes" would get your overblown egos in check, "jerks" like us would have a little more respect for the prima donnas that all of you are.

    The Voice: I hope you will never need a fire fighter or paramedic to come to your house anytime soon! Yes these are our heroes. They hang their butts out on the line for people like you everyday! They do it because they love to help. The pay is not great so it sure aint the money! I know one of the firefighters and he is a close dear friend of mine and I take offense to your comment. Anytime a Firefighter, Paramedic or Law Enforcement gets hurt minor or seriously you should be concerned and thankful be cause the life or house or car they might save might be yours! It makes my day to see jerks like you say the thing s you said here and then when you need someone like us you call all glad . You will eat these words like crow my friend! Good luck next time you need help call O Bama or a hippie! Thank go d they were not hurt seriously! GOD BLESS OUR FIRE EMS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT !

    Ah. So we are supposed to be concerned? These are our "heroes", next to law enforcement and the military.

    Hope both firefighter's are not seriously injured and will recover fully quickly. Our thoughts are with you I know one of the injured just returned from Iraq! God Bless!
