Some Close Calls
Just Recently Ive heard some very scary things! I was talking to a firefighter I know in Mass. the other day and he was tellin me about a fire the previous day. It was just a normal fire, doin the "Procedures", until they were opening up a part of the ceiling to knock down the fire, only to find some live pipe bombs! Wow, talk about a scary situation. The companies working on this alarm decided to evacuate the building and move to exterior operations, which I believe was a smart decision. Another close call I've heard was just the other day. The city fire dept. close to me, was fighting an apartment fire when three firefighters became trapped when a parachute hanging from the ceiling in one of the rooms feel on them intangling them. Luckily, a call for help went out and the rescue freed them using knifes. The three were hospitalized for a short time and released, and doing much better. What are some "Close Calls" You have heard or been told about??????
