Re: [californiadisasters] News Crew Nearly Escapes Flames of Erskine Fire

A news crew from a major LA network did something similar during the Old fire near Lake Arrowhead in 2003 and had to be pulled from the expensive van as it caught on fire before they even knew they were in trouble. 
The person is still one of the main anchors on the same network.
And the worst part is he didn't even thank the Deputies that saved his life.

i'm confused,

1 yes news crews can go where they want, even in the middle of the fire if they choose, but if its not safe for fire crews the news crews are on there own,

2 if this crew knew they were going to be there and do that, where is all of there fire gear, news crews that normally photograph fires, photographers that do fires all carry the same clothing the fire crews do, and that's why they use those really big lenses so they can stay out of harms way

3 if i were their boss, they would be canned, not because they put them selves in danger, but damaging a news van packed with expensive equipment

just my 2 cents worth, been there done that out on the line

I suppose it COULD be an autocorrect or voice-typing thing... 'Narrowly' and 'Nearly' can sound a bit alike...

But I'm still chuckling a bit.

The title is miss leading like they did not make it out.
