The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that a fire crew on an emergency call was prevented from entering the Wisconsin State Capitol this week. It turned out that the emergency concerned a person stuck in an elevator, but for all the frustrated firefighters knew, someone was having a heart attack.
Now, to be fair, there had been firefighters among the crowd in the Capitol before the demonstrators were moved out of the building. These particular ones, though, showed up in a fire truck. They wound up driving their rig around to the other side of the building to get in.
The Journal Sentinel did not specify whether the police at the door challenged the team with the customary, "Where's the fire, Bub?"
