Petition: Obion County, Don’t Stand By And Watch Homes Burn Down

Obion County, Don't Stand By And Watch Homes Burn Down

When South Fulton, Tenn. firefighters arrived at Vicky Bell’s burning home, she expected them to try to save some of her remaining possessions. But instead, the firefighters stood by and watched her home burn to the ground-because she had not paid a $75 fee.

Because Vicky and her husband live outside the city limits of South Fulton, they must pay for the same protections that residents receive for free. Forcing firefighters to respond and then allowing them to do nothing is no way to use taxpayer money. Plus, this is the second time that South Fulton has let a home burn down in the last year.

Fire protection is exactly what our taxes should fund. Tell Obion County Mayor Benny McGuire that if he’s entrusting the lives of his residents to South Fulton firefighters, he’d better make sure they have the funding to do their jobs. Don’t let this atrocity happen again.
