This fire occurred in a neighborhood where the LeDuc [Alberta] City Council has delayed adding a fire station, despite the recommendation by the fire chief and lobby by LeDuc Local 4735 members. Leduc Local 4735 is one of the IAFF's newest affiliates in Alberta.
Happy that there are people who want to be fire fighters. They are very brave. These fire fighters are standing on my roof, as my neighbors homes burn. http://www.portlandonline.com/fire/index.cfm?c=25923
