Without giving actual details in an ongoing case, here's something that makes me mad. I talked to this lady relative who is so proud that when the Los Padres fire came and destroyed a lot of houses, her son disobeyed the evacuation orders and fought the fire with his garden hose. Wow, was he brave! In the meantime, other residents did the same and either blocked the road logjamming the firefighters, or delaying them when they succumbed to smoke inhalation and fire crews had to help those homeowners and renters who refused to leave. One of the firefighters who was on scene (high school friend) died while fighting a fire and the firemen and women were unable to get to him on time because a few residents blocked the road or made it hard for help to get to the fire zone. The resident, while in a suit and tie, who valliantly fought the fire, disobeying an evacuation order, gets in the news as a hero. In the meantime, there was little press on the firefighter who couldn't be reached because residents like him blocked the narrow roads and tried to be firefighters themselves. When a relative brought up their heroic resident son, I almost brought up the trapped firefighter, who under regular conditons had the roads and home been cleared, would have been saved.
