Well that sucks for this Fresno firefighter who fell through the roof is now hospitalized with serious injuries. It also sucks that the guy recording would point his camera at the ground as soon as something worth recording happens. Dick.
No disrespect but there's a fine line between hero and stupid
this one pretty much busts the "fireman saves kitty from a tree" bullshit stereotype
not the sharpest knife in the draw
he would have fell through the roof on that shitty section 8 housing even if it wasn't on fire
The roof,the roof,the roof is on fire.Seriously,stop dancing,the roof is on fire and you need to put out immediately before the fire spreads and somebody gets hurt.
Firefighters in California get up on roofs way too much. This was a case where he had no business up there. They get less house fires in CA than out here and somehow feel compelled to climb up on roofs with a chainsaw every chance they get. I'm no coward, but fuck getting on THAT roof with heavy fire conditions for no reason other than a photo opportunity for KTLA news. Vent holes don't put out fires, water does. That fire fucked him up, and he might not come back to work, all because he was standing above a garage that was already lost. No amount of vent holes would've changed that.
Fire Departments have been doing this stuff for a very long time and with the firefighters falling through roofs left and right you think they would change their strategy. To me walking around on a burning roof is like riding a moped in China.
The news said he was burned over 60% of his body. These guys risk there lives every day. I won't joke about it here. I hope he isn't burnt to badly and will be all right.
I don't see the point on getting up on that garage either, way too much smoke and flame in there. I know Cali has water shortages but damn they should have been dousing the house or make it so that's it's a controlled burn
This video should be shown to every i8 year old hero who wants to be a fireman. This was a 25 year veteran Captain.
I would love to punch that fucking douche who's shouting "where is he?"......where do you think he is, you dumb cunt. Seriously, this shit wouldn't be tolerated over here. That camera would have to be surgically removed from his colon and he wouldn't be shitting right for a month.
I agree with bobbabooey, that was pretty stupid to even be up there. It's not like he was saving somebody, he was just showboating in front of the camera that was pointed at the grass
The only good hero is a dead hero. Fucking idiots!
Hey Ouch. Fuuuuuuuuck you.
Working on roofs are one of the most MF" Dangerous jobs a Firefighters has to do. Also, Picklehiesner, they have to check the structural integrity of the under lying of roof, so it does not cave in on top of fellow Firefights working below. In addition, Firefights cut vent hole in roofs to release the extreme trapped heat this in turn cools the fire greatly...
I was once a Ranger, something like a boyscout, volunteer firefight for a short time until they closed down the sation were I reported.

@bobbabooey Come on! What a fucking idiot this cunt is, I mean really, he should be given a V.I.P membership to CS so he can post pics of his dumb shit he does. What a fucking Moron. Oh look at me I'm a fucking brave cunt. Stupid is as stupid fucking does! He deserves the fuckwitt award of the year for this! Ever since 9-11 you fucks have been talking up fire fighters as heroes and deservedly so and making movies about them, Before 9-11 you couldn't have given a rats ass about them! so fuck you bobbabooey. and Until you are injured in the line of duty putting out a fucking fire I suggest you go and take a flying fuck at the moon
@Ouch I'm no hero, and yes, I have been burned in the line of duty. I don't understand the point you're trying to make. First you say firefighters are idiots, including him, then you say only a dead hero is a good hero, and then you tell me to take a flying fuck until I'm injured? Good news for you is yes, I've been injured, and even burned on fires. Worst smell in the world is burnt human flesh, and worse when it's your own. I don't do it for awards. They award me with a paycheck every other Friday.
@ouch, don't forget the dumb fuck Tony mAggott that pretends to be our Prime Minister also pretends to be a fire fighter whenever the cameras are present.
The only chance that cunt will be burnt is by an un-lubricated arse fucking...
Really I need to explain it. jeezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzusssss
I hope he's ok and +1 to the fire fighters...-1 for Ouch and Bobba being on the rag and wasting my battery.
@dullfeathers fuck the dumb cunt!
