I've been in the fire service for 10 years...Up till now I have only heard stories of stuff like this.
Two days ago I recieved a call of a pile of trash on fire and left unattened. I rode over and spoke with the homeowner. He was a great guy who had a hose out and didn't have a problem with me coming over to check up on his pile. He was there with it. His truck was parked on the side of the house, whoever called it in probly couldn't see his truck. At that point all seemed to be over, he was there with it and there was no problem.
Tonight his wife came to my home and beat on my wall till I came outside. She informed me that she grew up in this town and that I was harassing her. While she went on her rant I called for PD to come out and handle this. She went on to accuse me of harassing her the day of the fire, said my dogs keep her up at night with all their barking (they are inside dogs...if they barked at all at night I would get rid of them!), my boat is an "public discrace"(its on its trailer under its cover next to my house...City rules)...ect. I had to file a police report and have her removed. I also had to request that PD advise her to remain off of my property. She is NEVER to return.
I guess this is the thanks I get for being a small town vol. Don't get me wrong, most of the residents are great. Ohh well, now its ya'lls turn. Has anyone else had this type of problem?
Stay safe out there -Lt. Matt
