Summary: In Cry Fire, are true stories of a Fire Company located in Williamsburg Brooklyn New York City, during the time of unrest and racial strife of the late Sixties and Early Seventies.At that time Firefighting companies responded to a staggering increase in alarms. These alarms included structural fires, false alarms, minor fires and emergencies. During these times Firefighters were subject to buildings being booby trapped, and firefighters being ambushed, where their means of exiting streets were c
utoff with debris and missiles thrown off roofs at them, which included Molotov Cocktales. They also had bricks and stones thrown at them as they responded to fires. The old time respect for firefighters in certain areas disappeared, It was if we were working in a different country, not the same country that most of us new in days gone by. Now we were the enemy, not the men that saved lives and property.To some it didn't matter that we were the men who would risk our lives to save possibly people of their own families. Most people in these areas were decent and law abiding people, but then there were the others.This book has been long in coming. But the story had to be told. If anything, for those Brothers who lost their lives trying to help others. This book is dedicated to them and their families. God Bless them all.
