We lost a Fire Fighter

I did not want to say it till it was said on the news. We lost a fellow fire fighter a couple of days ago. He was doing water drops in a Hellicopter when it went down. They don't know why it happened yet. It was the McGinnis Fire near us. Sad day, these guys get in some tight spots and realy help us out during these fires. I know I sure don't want there job. He was a good pilot too! Mark H.

Willy-N Thanks!    Posted 07-28-2003 at 23:10:01       [Reply]  [No Email]

Sorry to hear that. Another tragic reminder that even brush fires can be deadly. Something we sometimes forget. My condolences to his family and his fellow firefighters.

This was one of the man caused fires too. There still working on putting it out. Mark H.

Man-caused? Intentional or accidental?

Willy-N    Posted 07-28-2003 at 08:00:44       [Reply]  [No Email]
We do not know who did it. We have a arsonest in the area we are tring to catch. To many fires lately to be accidental ones. Mark H.

I hope you find him and he is charged with murder. He deserves no less.

When he or she is caught they are going to throw the book and a few other things at him. It is gone to far now a life was lost not just property and resorses! Mark H.

im sorry to hear about the loss of the pilot, they have a dangerous job, as you know we lost two bomber pilots just a couple weeks ago it,s sad. there are 185 fires buring in b.c as of last night,most of them in the southern part and one third of them was man made, gotta make ya wonder about people huh?

Mark, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of that firefighter.

And Toolman, yes, I often wonder about people. Those that start fires should be charged with murder when there is a loss of life fighting the fire.
