Ridge, NY Car fire with a twist
Sunday Sept 19th, 1999 approx 15:30 hrs Ridge FD Engine 3 responded
to a working car fire. Big deal you may say, except that there was
a little twist to the story. After the fire was extinguished I noticed
that there were two of our probies standing there, Danny Townsend and
Jamie Sasek without turnout gear on. I then took a second look at the
car, it was Danny's car that Jamie had been fixing. Apparently there
was an electrical short that ignited a fuel supply.
Oops, guess Jamie's not getting the District Mechanics job !!
P.S. Nice job on the knockdown by the guys on Engine 3. (I won't list
them, it'll go to their heads )

I am trying to figure out how to include the picture.

Special thanks to Engine 3 and the above for there efforts to save the teddy bear that was driving. Although the efforts failed and the bear didn't make it, GREAT JOB, guys! Have fun tooling the remains at drill.
