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.

Gabe- This was a personal pet peeve of mine when I was on the Truck. All you have to do is read the instructions for Warthog blade care and a little pride in your equipment. I always took a trash bag and laid it flat; sprayed WD-40 all over it. Laid the blade on it…

Bill... your article is definitely something that should be brought up in every firehouse, whether it be in a formal class setting or an informal firehouse kitchen table discussion. I was my Department's liaison to and a member of the City's Code Enforcement Impact Team. Part of what we did was marking abandoned properties with…

When moving up through the chain of command, one better learn the politics of the department and community without playing politics.
