Only in the hood
Ok so the other night engine and ladder respond to investigate a fire alarm. happens all the time, right? upon arriving to the large commercial building they realize that the building is full of smoke and ask dispatch for a first alarm assignment. Once forcible entry (breaking in) is complete the crews find that the fire is a short circuited hover-round and the sprinkler system performed as designed. The fire was held in check by one sprinkler head and there was only some water damage to surrounding merchandise. The appropriate notifications were made including the owner of the business. The owner was being briefed by the battalion chief when a passer-by stopped and yelled "who owns the truck and trailer parked in the street?" The owner replied it was his and the passer by then advised that 3 guys just stole your dolly and about 1/2 your tools off your trailer! goes to show that criminals dont care how many people are around and what your personal situation is, just as long as they can aquire something of value to trade for dope!
