    How ironic are own fire department couldn’t cross the tracks to extinguish a fire at a local establishment but we’re supposed to rely on other agencies farther away that would have to cross the same tracks go figure Greg

  2. Couldn't or wouldn't? says:

    Hard to put out a fire when you walk across the tracks without a hose or fire extinguisher. Thank goodness we have some brave Rescue Squad people willing to help the people of this village still.

    That’s a very great question who would have to ask Greg what he crossed the tracks with, frankly I don’t care if all he had was a squirt gun the fact is we were beat to the punch!!! This is nothing but a horse and pony show, where’s sgt. Punsley when u need him?

    My apology to our rescue squad for not giving credit for your fine efforts I of all people should know better for all the help you have given my dad! Peace and good will to all of you!!!
