Firefighters let home burn over $75 fee — again.

Firefighters stood by and watched a South Fulton County, Tennessee, house burn to the ground the week of December 5 because the homeowners did not pay the annual subscription fee for fire service. It is the second time in 2 years firefighters in the area have watched a house burn because of unpaid fees. Last year, a family lost all of their possessions in a house fire, along with three dogs and a cat, because the fire fee was not paid. People in the city of South Fulton have fire protection, but those in the surrounding county do not unless they pay a $75 annual fee. The city makes no exceptions. The homeowner and her boyfriend said they were aware of the policy, but thought a fire would never happen to them. The city has received a lot of criticism over its policy, but has refused to change it.

The company previously had only publicly stated that cracks at the plant were near the bottom of the shield building’s wall.
