I've got a few friends that live in Worcester ... one day I was visiting one of them & he decided to light a small campfire so his kids & their friends could roast marshmallows. We had this tiny fire going for about 5 minutes, when all of a sudden, sirens wailing (which is normal in that place), here come 3 firetrucks into his yard!!
I was just appalled .... They actually dragged a hose over & put the fire out!!! I guess it's a city ordinance. I can see the logic in that with all the run down 3-deckers in that dump, but he lives in one of the few nice parts of the city. Some jackass with nothing better to do probably called on him.
I wouldn't live there if I were PAID
