  •  Not firefighters' first choice (2+ / 0-)

    It's not the firefighters' fault. Just want to clarify. The health / liability insurance would not cover if firefighter was hurt in that fire once determined A) homeowner  lives not in danger and B) fire district tax not paid. Unincorporated "town" refused to contribute to nearby town's fire budget So taxpayers outside town where mandatory tax could choose voluntarily pay for fire coverage. Even if not paid tax, firefighters would have gone in to protect lives, but not property. Even if tax paid in advance of fire, still firefighter judgement to let property burn if lives not in danger.
