Man blames fire department for home burning down
The man says the department wasn't fully prepared to battle the blaze
SHREVEPORT, La. — A Shreveport man whose house burned to the ground on Christmas Day says that, if it weren't for the Shreveport Fire Department, he might have been able to rescue a few possessions from the flames. In an interview with KSLA News 12, the homeowner explains why he believes the devastation is partly the fire department's fault.
"It was so hot that the cans of beans done bust," says Joe Caldwell of the fire that destroyed his house. The Christmas Day fire left nothing but charred remains.
"All my children stuff done burnt up, all the toys," he says.
