Broken: Fire station in Start, La.

This is a fire station in Start, Louisiana and is named Start Fire. Need I say more...


I'm assuming Billy Joel either doesn't work there or denies it vehemently.

I like that they even give you a picture in the center of a fire being started just in case you were wondering how to start fire. Maybe just maybe this isn't broken, but is instead a way to keep the firemen busy. They were bored so their asking people to start fires. I'm now going to have to drive to Intercorse PA, to see if I can see any signs for Intercorse Fire. Now that would be something to see.

Boy do I wish I could edit my comments, Intercourse, PA. I was sleepy this morning.

A guy named Wood comments on Intercourse? Not broken.

they could have put fire in the center door and station ont the third door. at least you would know what the heck that building was at first glance.

When I was at PennState the newspaper would always have pictures of the Amish in Intercourse PA. It's actually a charming little town.

I wonder if there is a town called Putout, and, if there is, how much work the firefighters have.

_@_v - the army corps of engineers usually names a new-built dam after the nearest town or village. they had to alter that policy when they build a damn near the town of 'gad'...

This is like one of those stupid instruction manuals you see for something you probably already know.

1. Start Fire

2. Stare in Shock

3. Call Start Fire

Don't forget the Sherburne Fire Department:

Well, there's always Hell, Michigan. Wonder what their station says!?!

Well, if you look at it, that's a picture of a cotton plant burning. So it could be seen as "Start Cotton Fire"
