Baltimore Fire Lieutenant Shares Experience As 'Ladder 49' Technical Advisor

Lt. Mark Yant of the Baltimore City Fire Department got involved in a lot more than he bargained for when he agreed to serve as Technical Advisor to movie makers on 'Ladder 49.'


And in some eyes, this is what makes him and all of the other firefighters out there the real stars. When two little kids came up to ask Yant for his autograph on their "Ladder 49" movie posters, he told them, "I'm just a firefighter you know, not an actor." One of the children then said enthusiastically, "We know! That's why we want it!"
