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.

Bill.. I agree with Tony C. The situations we respond to sometimes reuire that we tune and tweak SOPs and SOGs "on the fly" in order to complete the tasks given. Fire doesn't care what is stated in our SOPs/SOGs.

A great read, Bill. I see so much of this in the fire service. I forgot to pull up my hood on the last fire and I didn't get burned. I didn't buckle my waist strap on the last fire and I didn't get tangled up. I didn't check my bottle before my last fire…
