Your emphysema could have been prevented if you didn’t smoke a pack a day for the past 30-40 years. Why should I pay for other’s mistakes? The second man is implying that house fires occur miraculously without fault of the resident? Sure maybe occasionally from some extraordinary circumstance, but 90 percent of the time it’s because the resident sets unattended candles up on an altar at night to worship their pagan gods. SuperDan4 I am a firefighter, and in the sake of accuracy, only 68% of fires are due to pagan rituals. Sullenman Damn, still more than what I would have expected. Guess the gods like their followers…crispy. OhPoop Our tax district does NOT cover fires. All the firefighters are volunteers and you have to pay for the service if they are called to your property, and it is not a horrendous cost either. lizziesmama Can I ask where you live ? I don’t know what I think about this. If I have a fire and can’t afford whatever that charge is – I might be tempted to let it burn itself out. OhPoop I live in a small town in Wisconsin. Last I heard it is $500.00 for them to come out and put out the fire. The local government will cover the cost and you can work out a deal with them to pay it off. There has been very few house fires around here, and when they do the community normally gets together and has a fund raiser to help out for cost a home owners insurance doesn’t cover.
