What's the strangest thing that's ever been dropped off at your fire station?

From animals to hand grenades, the items dropped off at the doorstep of a firehouse continue to surprise and confuse us


We've all seen it in the movies before and maybe even real life.

You're leaving the firehouse, step outside, look down and there's a baby left at the doorstep. It doesn't happen all the time, but when it does it stops you in your tracks. And it's not just babies that are left at the doorstep of a firehouse.
