    In the Line of Duty.... Mourning the loss of two Firefighters

     

    There is an ominous feeling in Los Angeles as the sky fills with cloud formations,pyrocumulas clouds,resembling the atomic bomb. It is visible throughout the city and I can  see it from my widow for the first time today. The air quality is poor,  one can only imagine what it is like for our firefighters as they risk their lives  day after day.

    Spirits are low as our local firefighters mourn the loss of two of their Los Angeles County fellow firefighters,Fire Captain Ted Hall and firefighter Arnie Quinones.There families suffer the loss of their tragic death. Arnie's wife was expecting their first child.

    "Until further notice all flags to be flown at half staff", wrote Fire Chief Michael Freeman. Sorrow is felt throughout.

    Local firefighters wait for  possible Recall to relieve fellow firefighters in the fight of a fire that will not quit!

    The people in our city join together in Honoring  the two firefighters who lost their lives...... In The Line of Duty.
