SHOCK!!! DOWNTOWN CRISIS: HOMELESS MAN CLAIMS KCFD DOUSED CAMPFIRE LEAVING HIM SOAKED AND COLD IN DANGER OF FREEZING TO DEATH!!!
The Downtown Kansas City homeless crisis continues into the New Year as divisions among class and social standing evoke high drama involving an often controversial group of 1st responders.
Here's both sides of the sitch:
A homeless man said he was hosed down by Kansas City firefighters during frigid New Year’s temperatures and left to freeze. The incident happened under a bridge near 20th and Oak on New Year’s Day around 2 a.m., when the temperature was around 21 degrees with a wind chill of 10.

Kansas City Fire officials confirm they put out a campfire at that location Tuesday at 2 a.m., and that an investigation is ongoing to determine whether or not people were soaked. KCFD Deputy Chief James Walker told FOX4 that kind of behavior wouldn't be tolerate, but firefighters are required to put out small fires like the one Bucalo started.
"The homeless people of our community are as important as someone who lives in a $10 million home. Knowing the people who do our job, I have trouble believing that would happen," Deputy Chief Walker said.
