Cranick lives outside of the city limits and he admits that he forgot to pay a $75 annual service fee that would have provided him with fire protection. Firefighters wouldn't lift a finger, much less the hoses that might have saved the house.

Seem rather ludicras they would let the house just burn down, but I herd they put out the fire in the adjoining neighors shed, becasue they paid the fee. They disgraced themselves and do not deserve to wear a badge of a fireman anymore.

I definatly can not imagine firemen who are universally regarded as heros, even before 911, would sit and watch the place burn down. All of them, and whoever ordered them to do that would be fired if I had anything to do with it.

This is absolutely sickening and represents how the elite use public services in order to coerce people into wage-expropriating contracts (like this $75.00 fee). I hope those firefighters have restless nights to follow.

My guess: they wanted to help but were ordered not to by some bureaucrat.

Its sickening anyone would let a house burn down in front of them, but its not an elite issue Aquarian. Its a simple matter of living outside a taxed incorporated city limit. They have the choice to pay $75 a year to be covered for a service they are not taxed for. Pretty darn stupid when it boils down to letting a house burn down over $75, not to mention the pride of being a fireman and watching it happen.

That is beyond disgusting....

IMO, they should have put out the fire and then sent a 75 dollar bill after the fact.

I bet the owner would have happily paid...

that said, I wonder if the person(s) had fire insurance.

If they did, you can bet the insurance company will either deny the charge or , perhaps, sue the local government that allowed the house to burn to the ground.

Firemen are not heroes, neither are Cops, they willingly sign up for the job, yes most take orders from above.

A hero is someone who takes a stand, or does the right thing, or volunteers, gives blood, or helps those in need BEFORE they consider " What's in it for me "

Victor Perez is a Hero!

A blood donor is more of a hero than a firefighter?

Everyone does those things, try running into a burning building, or saving a life, or cutting someone out of a crushed car. My hats off to these guys everyday of the week. By the way we still have small communities all over this nation where the Fire Department is an all volunteer firehouse. I grew up in a neighborhood, and it was that way.

P.S. I Edited to remove a comment I misread from A1
