Wasn’t this #2 for the shift for these guys? I thought I heard E16 and the rest of these guys out at about 11:00 PM on another working fire.

I was Very impressed with the response time of those brave men. i was the one who called 911 when i saw the fire. i owe everything i have left to the firefighters for getting there so quickly. everyone made it out ok because of them and i wish i could shake each and everyone of their hands for their dedicated service and rapid response
