• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

It's current, and they have located the source of the fire, and they are working it. There was talk of a possible homeless person inside the building.

There is access to the interior of the building, not sure which part.

Black smoke, multiple holes in the roof, and crews are being advised that the building has been vacant for the past few years.

There's a search group inside as well.

Flames through several spots in the roof coming from roofing material.


The homeless person is NOW out of the building, and there is NOT a rescue operation in progress now, just the working of the fire.

I can hear the a chainsaw type sound in the background.
