I bet the person shooting them had no permit. Thank you to all firefighters tonight. The fire department and DPD have had their hands full lately with more important calls. They are all doing their best.

Been listening on the scanner and sounds terrible. Thanks for all you do and stay safe and drink plenty of water.

Glad your night wasn’t any worse. Fireworks going off all around my house. God Bless you all DFD. My heroes

They where letting them off in our neighborhood till 3 am! Night 4 of this crap, and finding them in my yard . I was under the impression that you had to have a permit for these , and what happened to disturbing the peace ?

You guys work so hard. Thank you for all you do. Wish everyone was more cautious.

Be careful out there in this heat! Thanks for all you do to protect our community!

Thank you, firefighters for all you do! Stay safe!

This is was my house and my husband's house we bought over 15 years ago our first house together even though we moved away long time ago still it holds memories. So I'm kind of sad....

Stay safe. Maybe they should have allowed a professional show and this wouldn't be so bad

Prayers for our firefighters and any tenants involved. 🙏🏾

Thank you DFD and DPD for your service. Stay safe. You all are in our prayers.

🙏🏼 Safety for all of you Thank You for your service!

Praying for your safety as you fight this fire. Thank you for your service.

Thank you covington, in

Praying for your safety.

I believe it damaged the house next door, displacing someone. With no inspectors to enforce, or confiscate illegal fireworks, or investigate the cause of the fire. This fire was unnecessary.

Hate to be "That Guy" But DPD has not been enforcing the fireworks violations since April so maybe shoot some blame that way too!

Stay safe and thank you

Be safe! 🙏🏻

Be safe.

Stay safe! ❤️

stay safe god bless you all

Be safe

I feel sorry for the fire department tonight. Somebody's driving around town setting dumpsters and garbage cans on fire. It's ridiculous.

There's my friend Bat. Chief Ohl!

I called animal control Saturday night and yesterday I noticed a guy chasing it around the inside of the fence. I asked him if he had called for help, he said no but he “might”. 4 hours later this happens.
