    Sounds like an excellent job by the St. Louis FD. It does suck that the papers didnt carry it though. Hope the remaining victims have a complete recovery.

    Thumbs up

    I'll tip my helmet to you.

    I saw the video, they definitely had their work cut out for them, they busted their asses to get those kids out. Thumbs up to the medics as well, not an easy call.

    Good job.

    Our brothers in St. Louis have every right to be "Justifiably Proud"!

    Hope the rest of the kids make it thru.

    I believe every one here is proud of the StLFD EVERYDAY.

    Great Job.

    A tip of the cow for a job well done!

    I'll tip my Bullard to you....nice job St.Loo! Looks like the AP picked up on one story...but missed the overall.


    Police look into fire that killed child, injured others
    tlcbtkan9034mostp
    ST. LOUIS (AP) - Although a weekend fire that killed one child
    and hospitalized three others was believed to have been accidental,
    detectives were investigating the circumstances.
    Seven children, ranging in age for 1 to 14, were in the house
    without adult supervision when the fire broke out early Saturday. A
    neighbor discovered it about 2:45 a.m.
    Police told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch they were checking
    information provided by a 27-year-old woman, mother of a
    14-year-old girl and 11-year-old boy who survived the fire.
    The fire killed William Pullum, 5. He and his brother, Kendrick
    Moore, 10, were spending the night with relatives at the time of
    the fire. Kendrick and a 1-year-old girl were in serious condition
    Sunday. A 14-year-old who had been hospitalized was released.
    All of the children apparently were sleeping when the fire was
    discovered. A neighbor who kicked in a door rescued two of the
    children, and firefighters rescued two others. The other three
    children were outside when firefighters arrived.
    The woman who lives in the house told investigators the children
    had been without adult supervision while she was at work, but that
    a neighborhood acquaintance had agreed to watch them in the early
    morning hours.
    The woman told police she went to her job as a nurse's assistant
    at a nursing home about 6:30 a.m. Friday. She said she worked a
    double shift, returned home about midnight, and stayed for up to 30
    minutes, when the neighbor appeared. The man said he would stay
    with the children, and the woman left to visit a friend, she told
    police. She said the man called her about 3:30 a.m. and told her
    the house was on fire.
    The woman said she then went to two hospitals looking for her
    two children. Detectives were trying to talk to the man said to
    have been watching the children.
    The cause of the fire isn't known, but investigators said it may
    have started in the kitchen, and they don't believe any of the
    children set the fire.
