By Edhat Subscriber

I drove past Chicken Ranch on De La Vina not too long ago and there were fire trucks outside. Does anyone know what happened?

It was not Chicken Ranch, it was accross the street at the credit union/medical office.

Either a call for service requiring the fire department or they were eating. Why do you ask?

Were the emergency lights flashing?? If not, it is likely an inspection or the firefighters were hungry.

Spontaneous chicken combustion.

It's (Chicken Ranch), is one of the "go-to" local restaurants that local firefighters hit- It is on the edge (overlapping) districts of 3 station response areas, so sometimes worlds collide and more than one crew will briefly be there to pick up their food.
(BTW, firefighters pay for their own meals while on shift)

They pay for their own meals? I guess they give up something to get generous pensions and the ability to retire at the age of 50. Not to mention working 24 hr shifts and getting paid for the down time. Public safety jobs are the best jobs in the world for benefits.

I always feel sorry for the people living in the apartments/condos behind the chicken ranch. They must be inundated with bbq smoke from early in the morning to late at night. Can never have their windows open unless they are on the neanderthal diet.

Firemen and policemen (persons if you prefer) earn their pay, their benefits and any adulation that comes their way. If you doubt it, spend a month's worth of shifts in their boots/shoes. Twenty-three hours of mind-numbing boredom followed by an hour of sheer terror...give or take.

concur 438
they could spend under 20 grand for a catalytic system which national chains are required to do but won't-same goes for Habits on Milpas and Old Town.It would be money well spent as they could then self congratulate themselves in the local media.If oil companies created that kind of local pollution activists would perform a locked arm sit in.

Sometimes the Habit's fumes are overwhelming. I've always been surprised they were permitted to pump out so much beefy smoke in a place where air quality is such a priority.


 COMMENT 530602P agree helpful negative off topic

The one in Magnolia Center and another restaurant in Fairview Shopping Center all spill out nasty, nausea causing fumes that smell more like tires being burned than food.

Structure fire response 2600 DLV. Engine 1 and truck 1 can handle. Small fire in void space of buiding being remodeled

Keukasmallie, cops deserve whatever they can get for having to deal with the dregs of our society on a daily basis, and coping with the danger of getting shot or stabbed on every call. Firefighters, on the other hand, have one of the easiest and most desirable jobs in the world.

If you want to know how desirable those jobs are, the last time they held a screening for firefighters to fill several job slots they had hundreds if not 1000s of candidates show up at La Cumbre Jr. High. The few that were selected became winners of high salaries and generous benefits. The rest are stuck at low-paying jobs with no retirements like the rest of us.

Firefighters have the best public relations people in the world because everyone loves them.
