A rescue company from FDNY was working a fire in the Bronx. One of the firefighters came out of the building carrying a screaming woman. She was yelling and hollering at the top of her lungs. One of the onlookers approached the firefighter who was carrying her and said, “Fireman, you’ll have to be patient with her. This is her first fire.”
