Smoke Investigation

We got a call for an illegal burn. the citizens of Morongo Valley are a little skittish when it comes to fires since they have had two major fires in the last three years or so. The RP (reporting party) stated that there was smoke and flames visible. Little did we know that as we were responding so was almost half of the deputy sheriffs in San Bernardino county. We ended up with 5 or 6 SO vehicles running around with us looking for this fire. At one point one of the deputies got in the way of us in Medic Engine 462. As we approached he realized that the lower part of our bumper was about equal to the roof of his squad car. Needless to say, he quickly got out of our way. We could almost hear him say, "AAAHHH! I'm going to get eaten by truckzilla!!!" We finally found a couple of kids that started a bonfire in their back yard. They were chewed out by our fire marshal, a sergeant from the sheriffs department, and a captain from CDF that Craig called in. There was a lot of man power for a couple of kids. As the last SO was leaving I asked him why the large showing of deputies. He said that they were bored and the call sounded like it might be good. Further proof that all cops wish they could be fireman!
