No pay, no spray: Firefighters let home burn "They put water out on the fence line out here. They never said nothing to me. Never acknowledged. They stood out here and watched it burn," Cranick said. (...) Just wow ... I kind have no clue what to say about this for the case its a true stroy as I never expected something like that to happen in a civiliced society (on purpose to say that). I mean ... I can always judge a situation just from MY perspective and from where I live. And here, in Germany at least its not even a question if firefighters should move out or not, even if its not their district they will do at least 2 things, either move out on their own OR call the next firebrigade nearest to it. And are forced to fight any fire if someone will pay for it or not is no reason NOT to do it. Dont get me wrong if people are responsible for it they will face trouble but thats no reason to just let things burn or not trying to stop the source of the fire.
