    Question W.W.Y.D If this happend?

    What would you do if you were at a fire and were doing a search and saw the image of a ghostly firefighter standing in front of you.....

    La Joya firefighters believe they've caught one on camera and they say they'll keep believing that until someone proves them wrong.

    Monday night, one of the firefighters shared the images exclusively with Action 4 News. La Joya Assistant Fire Chief Richard Flores isn't really afraid of ghost.

    "Ah, it doesn't bother me, as long as he helps," says Flores, laughing.

    In fact, a helpful ghost is what his crew believes they captured on camera at a tire shop fire, last week.

    The tire shop is located at Moorefield Road and 7 mile line, in Hidalgo County.

    "We had one of the firefighters taking pictures that night," explains Flores. "And when she took the picture she looked down at the back of the digital camera and it looked blurry and she thought she messed up."

    But after printing the photos from a computer, it was a quite clear. The translucent image of a firefighter can be seen walking through rubble.

    So was it simply a camera glitch or the paranormal?

    "We started talking to people and they say digital cameras don't do that," says Flores. "Digital cameras will take pictures and then stop. They won't take pictures over ones that have already been taken."

    And if it was indeed a ghost, he may have had some company, from another ghost.

    Analyzing the picture closely, his wife points out a second image that closely resembles a man's face.

    Asked about the second image, Flores says, "I can't place that one. The guy that really caught our eye is the one where you can see clear through him."

    And before anyone claims they can see right through Flores on this one, he strongly denies altering the pictures on a computer.

    "I'm not gonna be doctoring any pictures - I don't have time for that."

    One thing is for certain, Flores has e-mailed the images to several neighboring fire departments and no one can seem to identify the mysterious firefighter.

    "How it came about I wouldn't know. But there was a lot of firefighters out there that night and it was a pretty big fire. And I guess we had extra help."

    Another puzzling detail is the fact that the unknown firefighter in the picture was wearing a blue hat. On the evening of the fire, everyone else was wearing black or white hats.

    Flores says they'll continue asking to see if anyone can identify the firefighter. He feels, perhaps, it's the ghost of a fallen local hero.

    OK I'll behave .... darn it

    I love the idea of some crusty ghost firefighter helping out.

    ummmmmmmmm ah CRAP! I thought I was in the strange/unexplained thread - scrolled up to check something and saw I wasn't My pet peeve - people who duplicate threads/posts.

    Jessie did it EVER occur to you to post this under the Strange and Unexplained thread where we've been talking about GHOSTS???? Or did you start a new thread because someone else already posted this article there????

    *sigh*

    Sorry, rant off.

    Sher, if you check the dates and times, Jesse put his thread up before the other person put his in the strange and unexplainable. Granted I agree with you regarding duplicating posts, however, I can only surmise that because this didn't happen directly to him he chose to begin a new thread as most of the posts in the other one are based on personal experiences.
    To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world.

    What I want to see is the EMT's checking his pulse and blood pressure during Rehab

    BTW if you are short-handed do you reckon NIOSH would let you count him as part of your 2out at a structure fire?

    You know.........maybe there was a small drop of water on the lens from the fire stream and it refracted the image of a near by firefighter or maybe it is just a ghost.
