DONT SAY OH ITS JUST A ROUTINE CALL.
One night tones set off for a odor investigation at 2100 hrs.While enroute dispatch changed it from odor investigation to structure fire. Upon arrival of a single family dwelling …no fire no smoke. My company we had FULL PPE on with scba on air. My partner and I went in to the house to investigate and no signs of fire, smoke or heat was visible. We continued are search into the basement and came to a door that felt hot. I asked my partner to check the door for heat also, as my partner was checking the door for heat ….a 16 yr old kid open the door and to his surprise and our surprise this kid stated “what the hell …oh oh I told my mom I was shooting off fireworks in my room in this cup”. Then all of a sudden our Captain comes running down stairs to our location and speaks to this kid “what the hell get your butt upstairs how dare you put my firefigher’s life endanger”
Me and my partner learned later that this kid was possibly shooting off a gun in his room. The point of this story is THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A ROUNTINE CALL. Oh by the way door was hot from a heat vent above the door.
