    (Nice Story - Beautiful Picture - Meanful Kiss)

    The photograph below shows a red Doberman licking an exhausted fireman.

    He had just saved her from a fire in her house, rescuing her by carrying her out of the house into her front yard, while he continued to fight the fire.

    She is pregnant.

    The firefighter was afraid of her at first, because he had never been around a Doberman before.

    When he finally got done putting the fire out, he sat down to catch his breath and rest.

    A photographer from the Charlotte, North Carolina newspaper, "The Observer," noticed this red Doberman in the distance looking at the fireman.

    He saw her walking straight toward the fireman and wondered what she was going to do.

    As he raised his camera, she came up to the tired man who had saved her life and the lives of her babies, and kissed him, just as the photographer snapped this photograph.

    So far in this thread there are 4 firefighters current/retired on the boards, I know there has to be more on here. Tonight we had a fire at the power plant where they did the filming for part of Ladder 49. That place is just like in the movie, EASY to get lost in. Here is the thing one of the local news stations had on their site as of right now: Breaking news out of Baltimore County.

    A 3-alarm fire is burning at the Riverside Powerplant in Dundalk.

    The building is on Broening Highway.

    Officials have evacuated the building.

    Were told one firefighter suffered a minor injury.

    No word on what started the fire.

    The final total for firefighters injured was 3: 1 was transported to a local hospital, 1 not sure if he was transported and 1 is typing this on GMTC.com. This was also a Hazmat Firebox due to unknown about chemicals since a unknown container was next to the fire, later found out to be quick knock firefighting foam.
