Quoting BRowell:" I don't know how I feel about it. I feel bad that they disclosed the information like that. They could've ... [snip!] ... the fire department about this and they've done nothing, maybe putting it on the news would get something done about it, idk."
I agree with your first paragraph. This might have been an isolated incident as to when they responded under the influence. Because ya, this wasn't just a house fire. And like you said, they needed all hands on deck. Kind of like being at war. You're all involved whether you should be or not. Either way if they were the slightest inebriated, that did nothing to cause their death, they would have died anyway. And in respect to the situation I agree that the City officials should have gotten a heads up on the DL vs printing it in the paper.
