STOCKTON, CA – Stockton Fire Chief Jeff Piechura wanted to see News10’s video of a Friday fire for a couple of reasons. And he didn’t like everything he saw.
“They’ve got to have their masks on. This guy’s sucking in a lot of stuff,” said Piechura. A few firefighters without masks could be seen in the direct path of thick, dark smoke.
“We’ll have to have a discussion to correct these behaviors,” Piechura said after viewing the video.
