Throughout the first half of the video, the woman, a neighbor repeatedly tells other bystanders that the firefighters are "too slow. They're too slow. …These guys right here don't even have their gear on. They're slow."
About half way through the video, the woman changes her tune when she realizes the flames are extinguished and says "That was quick. It's gone already."
According to neighbors heard in the video, no one was home during the fire.

Micheal KellyThursday, December 27, 2012 11:36:18 AMIf we don't have enough to worry about already! Wonder what she thinks about FF being shot at?
Brandon PhillipsThursday, December 27, 2012 11:36:19 AMShe most b an expert with 20 or more years on the job. They should invite these experts to a live fire exercise so they can show us all how its done. Ofcourse with some supervision incase there ability is a little rusty.
Sandy AndersThursday, December 27, 2012 11:36:23 AMAt least they are actually doing something instead of standing way the heck back and complaining about other people! Got to LOVE people who think they know what they are talking about when they CLEARLY don't know their butts from a hole in the ground!
Freddie HatcherThursday, December 27, 2012 12:03:15 PMI wish the LDH would have busted and soaked her ass.......
Jim CarleyThursday, December 27, 2012 12:07:12 PMThis bitch needs to punch in the head! Instead of standing there gawking and complaining her ass should have been at home INSIDE minding her own business. Plus firefighters are taught to control adrenaline and not rush into a blaze. Wished it had been this womans home and it burnt to the ground people like her piss me off. Also it seems to ne she didn't know the neighbors for crap and she lived by them!
Michael TallmanThu Dec 27 15:44:14 PST 2012Jim, exactly what I was about to say. And let me guess, more than likely this is either a vol or combo dept, so if she wants things to go faster, then SHE should join and get a better respect for what goes on.
Joseph Andrew LueraThursday, December 27, 2012 12:31:43 PMFight it yourself then Ladies..... Good Lord...
Gerry GayThursday, December 27, 2012 1:18:24 PManother ignorant tax payer who has no idea what we do or what we see every day.......................
Morgan FrostThursday, December 27, 2012 1:41:49 PMEverybody's a critic.
Gordon LittlefieldThursday, December 27, 2012 2:00:22 PMSomeone ought to light her ass on fire and see her put it out! (Only being sarcastic....I know we can't really light her ass up, just say'n!)
Michael HolmesThursday, December 27, 2012 2:17:17 PMOk so they were taping the side of the fire that had exposure protection not initial attack, LMAO duh.
Chris JamesThursday, December 27, 2012 2:44:53 PMthat's the problem right there stupid bystanders they should be banned from all fire scenes and if they come up there they should get thrown in jail.
Michael MoutonThursday, December 27, 2012 5:46:15 PMLike to see her put some gear on and join in the fight. If you don't know what is happening then just shut up!
Rodney Bean TaborThursday, December 27, 2012 6:09:24 PMAll I can say, ignorant people! Let them come walk in our shoes for one day! I'm a vol. fireman and love what I do! Be safe all fire fighters! God Bless!
Jerome PriceThursday, December 27, 2012 6:20:35 PMBeing a vol FF we hear this kind of crap all the time! We all just have to consider the source and ignor the stupidity!
Susz BlakeThu Dec 27 18:49:47 PST 2012I'm proud to say that I have friends that are great Fire Fighters. You guys care about people and go way beyond your duties. Love you all.
Chuck SpeicherThursday, December 27, 2012 11:35:50 PMThe woman is probably a member of Westboro Baptist Church who say bad things about good people.
Raymond ScottFriday, December 28, 2012 5:33:41 PMIt's called ignorance...and the general public is ignorant of what fire fighting is all about. Most people think it's what you see on television shows and movies; and that's the farthest thing from the truth.
Max HengstWednesday, January 02, 2013 6:34:59 PMShe's too slow!
Max HengstWednesday, January 02, 2013 6:36:29 PMNo clue what so ever. Like to see her run in all of that gear. These are the same drones that think CSI can solve any crime in one hour on television!
Dan BennisWednesday, January 02, 2013 6:42:30 PMand yet this FD would help her as well.
