"I have no ambition in this world but one, and that is to be a fireman. The position may, in the eyes of some, appear to be a lowly one; but we who know the work which the fireman has to do believe that his is a noble calling. Our proudest moment is to save lives. Under the impulse of such thoughts, the nobility of the occupation thrills us and stimulates us to deeds of daring, even of supreme sacrifice."

 
Chief Edward F. Croker, FDNY
circa 1910

Stations one, and three responded last Thursday to reported overturned fuel tanker on fire. The driver of a tanker carrying over 8,500 gallons of fuel was killed after it crashed and caught on fire on State Road 62. This marks the third traffic related fatality of 2014.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the tanker was heading east on SR 62 approaching Moye Road when, for an unknown reason, the tanker traveled off the roadway and onto the south shoulder. It then overturned and hit a guardrail exploding into flames. The tanker was the only vehicle involved.
