    First of all for all the ones who think they know everything that goes on!!! All of our firemen get questioned for every fire. and thanks to the person who said something about being quicker, how about take your time to go be a fireman and lets see how long it takes you to go to a fire... fyi no one has lived in that house for years!!!!!! and secondly all of the fire departments can only respond so quick. everything that gets called in goes to the county then county pages us out to the call.. then we get in our truck and get there!!! so for anyone else that wants to be RUDE join the fire dept. and lets see if you can do any better

    well even when someone was living there it looked like no one did. . .or should. Probably looks the best now that it has in years.

    I personally am convinced for these brats being even consideredfoir "memebership" in a gang they are told to do "something" making NEWS headlines or coverage. From there IMHO it is not long to murder or more subtle car-jackings.

    Maybe the local volunteer fire dept. chiefs in that district and close districts should start questioning their volunteers. I read that 75% of all arson is committed by volunteers looking for their next call. Wouldn't surprise me one bit if its true.

      Stupid talk! It's tough to be called out in the middle of the night. If you're a volunteer then it means get up and go to work the next day. I don't believe this was done by a fire fighter. sas you seem to know a lot about arson....

      Just be thankful that there are volunteers that are willing to respond, when and where ever they are needed. Also be thankful that you are able to hear to be awaked by the horn.

          And if you firefighters in that district would have been a half a second past half a second responding to his call jeff would have being sueing you and pitching a fit if his house was on fire. I do not live in that district but GOD bless you guys and girls for the jobs you do.
