    I can hear the confusion now: Ladder 1 take your crew to the first floor, the engine company has the roof. . .

    Funny thing is that the picture isnt doctored, look at the windows just above (below?) the roof, look at the way they open.
    Imagine stumbling around drunk, trying to find your way home after a big night, and coming across this. That would be too much if you ask me.

    For all the life of me, i cant see a firefighter going to hell. At least not for very long. We would end up putting out all the fires and annoying the devil too much.

    Either the house was built like that, or the picture is doctored and the house was added.

    Look at the lot to the right of the house. Too small for the building to have actually been there. No damage to the roof so it didn't roll over from the left side.

    Still, would definately elicit a HOLY SCAT!!! upon initial arrival.

    I'm pretty certain the picture is ligit, you can see what looks like the power service lines on the right side of the photo coming down to the C side of the bldg. My guess is it was purposefully built that way to illicit the reaction we are all having.

    The lettering on the roof looks like it's upsidedown Korean. Talk about taking a joke to its extemes. Looks like some sort of retail space, real question is: is there a Div 2 in the house, or would that be Div 1. Imagine if there was a full basement on top of it all (pun not intended)!

    My wife sent these to me, here's another one...

    Re. previous pic -- that's in Quebec City (by the waterfront) if I'm not mistaken. There's another one down the block that is even better. I'll try to post it later.

    Re. the first pic -- notice the door in the "roof" -- don't think it's a doctored pic. Just a conversation piece. And it's working.
