"i was swept under." even after coming to... he went back to work. and these days... they're working out of a tent. water nearly covered the fire house here on mutual boulevard. when it receded...evet supplies... are now debris on the curb. they lost three fire trucks while working through flood waters...and they could lose the two they have if they don't find a garage before the temperature drops. "because the trucks will freeze, pipes will bust." they can't even use their gear. "you can see the mold growth." inside... are still soaked file cabinets.
