Firefighters watch house burn to the ground & do NOTHING!!*Update Pg 3 w/video.CNN & FOX now reporting story
Video at newslink..

County residence are required to pay a $75 dollar fee each year if they want the fire dept to come out if they have a fire..this older couple hadnt paid..

the fire dept refused multipy times..and didnt come out until the neighbors house caught fire too because they had paid the yearly fee.

The local news media was told to leave after fire dept called police because of protesters.


sad sad story... glad there wasnt someone in the fire like grandchildren or anyone for that matter

That happened to a neighbor's pole barn..You must pay a fee for protection of stand alone structures, he didnt it went up in smoke.

True, but to a farmer whats in the barn keeps the home theirs. I'm sure he had insurance on the equitment, but to a farmer time is essential.

theres a city fire department..if you could call the small town a "city"...but theres no county fire dept and if you have a fire the fee has to be pre-paid

i say at the very least they should have went out and done their job..charged the homeowners the whopping $75 bucks and then maybe fined them a little more..

hell anyone would be happy to pay a fine with the fee to save their home...

NO. The fire dept. wanted to make an example out of the old folks. That way fewer people will decide not to pay. Kinda like how mobsters run extortion rackets.

Gee whiz, I wonder who set that fire in the first place?

i dont understand.

98% of this site is against any form of socialism, yet the fire department is a socialist system.

so when its changed to a capitalistic system, and people can not pay, then you get mad??!?

is this not what we want?

They shouldn't have let the house burn down.

But this is typical of so many whiners in this country. They want government services but start screaming "socialism" when they have to pay.

Not too long ago, back in the 50's and earlier, you PAID for your fire protection to a PRIVATE company. There were choices and the likes too.

Yet, to me, it is un-American to watch a house burn down if you have a fire-truck on the scene. Budgets or not, that is an eye-for-an-eye and totally old-school.

The fire dept did the right thing.

The property owner had a free choice to be part of the fire district or not. No unfair across the board tax, with perhaps 0.20 cents on the dollar reaching the fire department.

This is exactly how it works where I live (rural america)- low taxes & you can choose to belong to the fire district or not. You can also choose to have a stone house with a metal roof & not feel the need to be part of the fire district.

This is how the American fire departments were established 250 years ago, and still the best way to run them -

Freedom of choice has responsability and consequence.
