Another House Burns, Another Fire Department Doesn't Respond…Yet another reason to have Fire Protection. Chino Valley Fire District does not respond outside their Territory…Or do they?

You keep saying I am right, then saying I am wrong. You say you agree with me, then saying you disagree with me. Make up your mind Dave. You love pointing I am wrong by saying I am right! It is hard to follow.
