WEBSTER, N.Y. — Bob Metcalfe was part of the group of firefighters who responded to the Dec. 24 call on Lake Road in the early morning hours of Christmas Eve.
Instead of fighting that fire, though, Metcalfe, along with some of his peers from the Laurelton Fire Department in Irondequoit, was forced to wait at the West Webster Fire Department station for hours until the scene was determined safe.
