1 story residence with fire showing from the front of the house.
Engine 11 arrives on location first and stretches an attack line to the door, we arrive seconds later and walk over to the porch where engine 11 is trying to breach the door without any ****ing tools. I'm standing on the ground and I yell at the dude kicking the door to take my maul (half ax, half sledge, 12 pound head) and bash that fucker open. I'm in the process of handing the maul over the railing and this civilian comes out of nowhere and grabs it out of my hands and hauls ass up the stairs holding the maul over his head like hes gonna swing it. I yelled "grab that motherf*cker!" and the guys on the porch turn around to see this dude charging them with my maul, so one guy tackles him down the stairs and the guy gets back up and tries to swing it but we all just start beating the shit out of him. meanwhile the house is a burnin. so one of the guys not wearing gear gets him in a headlock and holds him while we go put the fire out.
the dude gets arrested and when im giving my statement to the police, they just start laughing their asses off. i wish i had my helmet camera because the whole scene was the funniest thing ive ever seen.
