    Firefighters Set Up A Ladder To Help Raccoons Escape Warehouse Fire

    https://www.sunnyskyz.com/good-news/...Warehouse-Fire

    Firefighters in Indiana helped two raccoons safely escape a warehouse fire and it was all captured on video.

    The South Bend Fire Department was busy putting out a large warehouse fire when they noticed two raccoons trapped on top of the building.
    A couple of quick-thinking firefighters set up a ladder in hopes that the raccoons would use them to escape.
    Paul Bierwagen captured footage of the raccoons climbing down the ladder to safety as people cheered in the background.

    I'm afraid I wouldn't pee on one if it were on fire. I've had too much grief from them...

    Are we sure they weren't smoking and caused it?

    Maybe it's because I sleep under one of their pee stains...

    Have to agree I don't like them. I have battled them twice where we live now. They can be bad news.

    They caused so much damage that, for a while, I was trapping and killing them on a regular basis. The ones we have now aren't, at least so far. They hang out here because they like our 3 acres of woods and leave every night to go eat from neighbors' garbage cans. (Our lids are bungeed down.) Then, they return. So long as they do that, I don't bother them. These have gotten smart enough that they don't drag the bags out of the cans any more, just climb in. One friend was convinced they weren't eating his garbage any more, until he looked in his can...
