    LANDOVER HILLS, Md. -- Three volunteer firefighters have been suspended for allegedly getting into a fight while battling a fire in Prince George's County.

    County fire spokesman Mark Brady said volunteers from three companies, Landover Hills, Kentlands and Bladensburg, responded to a fire Monday morning in the 6900 block of Standish Drive in Landover Hills.

    Brady said one of the volunteers parked a fire truck on the hose of another company, setting off the fight which apparently was caught on tape.

    Three volunteer firefighters, two from the Bladensburg Fire Company and one from Kentlands, were suspended. Officials said the firefighters were "pushing and shoving" each other outside the burning house. The fire department is investigating the incident.

    Brady also said the fire department is investigating an allegation of another scuffle inside the house where two career firefighters suffered minor burns.

    The fire was extinguished in a timely fashion, according to officials. There were no other injuries.

    The blaze was caused by an unattended candle and caused about $30,000 in damage.


    More posts to come !!!! One of the GODS OF FIREFIGHTING decided they would disable another firefighter's SCBA during a working fire. Criminal charges are pending. It's about time the media exposed what is going on in Prince George's County.

        Okay, which PGFD company are you with? I assume when you speak of the "gods of firefighting" that you talk of Kentland 33. Those members who began the fight will be dealt with as they should be I'm sure. Though the engineer of the piece that parked on the line should know better, even a probie knows you don't park a 60,000# engine on a line.

        E229Lt, my thoughts exactly......NOW WHO HAS THE BARREL!!

        Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the ability to control it.

            Drama

            I think they should post it on their web sites. Seems to me every room and contents fire in some crappy suburban shack or car crash turns into an exciting story of daring deeds. I know the self -proclaimed "best fire department in the world" needs to defend its honor when trampled upon. Hell, I never even heard of these places pre-Resolution 43. The shameless self promotion that is displayed by my fellow IAFF "Brothers" (the 2 hatters that LIVE in a firehouse for Gods sake) is not only amusing, but downright entertaining. Here's a news flash. There are other places in this country that are busy. They just happen to be comfortable enough with their manhood that they dont need to whip it out online, or even more amusing/pitiful...A VIDEO

              Thanks MIKEY. Another fact is two firefighters(Union Members L1619 ) suffered burns that may be related to the actions(the fight inside the house
              ) of fellow firefighter.

                FIRE SHOWING FROM LANDOVER HILLS HOUSE
                2/13/2006 -
                At 0030 hours, Engine 334, Tower Ladder 33 and Chief 33 (Mattison) were dispatched to 6908 Standish Drive, in Landover Hills, for the house on fire. Initially, calls were flooding into the Prince Georges County 9-1-1 center, reporting that the kitchen was on fire at the above address. First arriving Engine 302 found fire showing from all windows on the first floor, side "B". Engine 334, with five volunteers, arrived, secured the water supply for Engine 302 and stretched a pre-connected back-up line. Once the Tower Ladder arrived with another five volunteers, they quickly went to work, performing a systematic search of the fire floor and floor above. After the main body of fire was knocked down, the Tower Ladder crew opened-up, secured utilities and performed a secondary search of the entire home. It is believed that the fire started due to unattended candles left in the kitchen area (due to a large power outage in the area). No civilian injuries were reported. One firefighter recieved minor burns to his wrist. Kentland Volunteers returned to service just before 0300 hours. Some of the volunteers still had not had solid sleep for almost 48 hours

                          I"m sure the career guys did not sleep that night in the county (Over 800 Calls for the Fire Dept. in the county during that time). Hope they got back in time to get to their stations in D.C..

                            WOAH! Easy bro, I wasn't calling you out in any form, I was just curious. What you posted, NOT the article, sounded as if it stems from jealousy, not saying it does, just reads that way to me, calm down. Now firstly, if you read my sig, I'm from WI not Maryland, though I do have friends out that way(not from the companies you've mentioned). Secondly, are there large issues/fights/bad blood between companies in PG-county? Lastly, if a company, mine, yours, or whoever want to have the ego that they are the best, and there is no-one better, fine. Nothing wrong with having the ego, but you must be able to maintain it, and be able to back it up. Ego's are what cause things like this, but it's also what forms brotherhood in some places. Look at the FDNY and how many houses have gained names, or likenesses because of things they've done or do, where they are, or the action they see? It makes this job what it is. I'm not defending anyone, especially when a brother(s) is(are) injured. This will work itself out, and hopefully will improve what you portray to be an ugly situation in PG-County.

                              Sorry pfd4life, I've worked in the county for nearly 20 years. PGFD was once respected , now we are a joke . Our leadership(paid and volunteer) have let the department get out of control. My reactions are the same I have to use at work, sad to say .
