Why We Search:Michigan Teens Ditch Class and Videotape Themselves Setting Fire In Empty Warehouse

Teens ditch school to play with fire inside Waterford warehouse.


Three ninth graders from Waterford Michigan skipped school, not to hang out at a friend’s house and play Call Of Duty, but to break into an empty warehouse and videotape themselves setting a fire.

On 18 January the boys broke into the “unoccupied” warehouse and set fire to paper towels. The trio laughed aloud while filming their escapade until the fire grew and the alarm system activated, then they fled. One of them realized he had left his cell phone inside and ran back in to retrieve it. Sprinklers knocked down the fire and a police K9 tracked down the juveniles.

I'm glad you identified the "one issue no one is discussing, the lack of manpower on scene". My department runs a single apparatus, staffed with a minimum of 4 guys sometimes 5, with our second due being either our paid call or mutual aid - either option realistically being 10 plus minutes behind the first…

Great article Dave. I agree with your comment that "they became traditions because they work." And yes if you change the focus from life safety to your own safety how about holding a town meeting and letting those you swore to protect know whats going on, I am sure they will see your point!
