MISSISSAUGAWATCH reporting from inside car parked on the east side of Creditview south of Bristol, December 18, 2011
It is Sunday, December the 18th, 2011 and there’s a whole bunch of Mississauga fire trucks there. No idea why.
This is Creditview.
It’s rare that you get the trucks —this many all at once.
Let’s go right in there, telephoto.
This is our Emergency Services.
And just to give you an idea of the whole scene, we’ve got pumpers here. That’s A101.
We’ve got Peel Regional Police. Dodge Charger.
Okay. On the bright side, they’ve got it under control. It’s very easy to tell —that they do.
City of Mississauga Fire Department. And a colleague from Peel Regional Police.
Oh. And I forgot to point out they have that as well so a full complement of Emergency Fire Services here.
Hmm. A hose there.
Oh, another police car. Coming in.
Should point out, Peel Regional Police, they’re hiring.
Oh, wait a second. There’s a police officer coming over this way. Let’s see if he’s going to tell me to turn the camera off.
MISSISSAUGAWATCH getting out of the car now parked on the west side of Creditview south of Bristol, December 18, 2011
It is still Sunday, December the 18th, 2011 and I was asked to move. So was the guy in front of me. For better flow of traffic.
And it was really nice. The officer recognized me as the “Mississauga watch dog lady”, (woof, woof) and so —yeah, I can smell smoke. And now that I’ve gotten out and across the street, I can now see where the problem is.
And we’ve got Emergency Services. We’ve got the Ambulance. This.
Anyway, don’t want to stay too long
