Firefighters Put Out Car Fire at Village Square

A restored vintage car burst into flames just before 10 on Sunday morning.

Lee Hossler of Monroe snapped photos of a restored car that burst into flames on the Village Square parking lot on Route 111 just before 10 a.m. Sunday. He said Monroe volunteer firefighters extinguished the fire.

It was a Cadillac of the sixties or early seventies.

Pimpin ain't Pimpin ain't Pimpin ain't easy.

To the Monroe fire department----good job and thank you.
sebastian dangerfield December 09, 2012 at 09:41 PM
Jim laguardia PLEASE GO AWAY!!! This is story about the fire department!!!! Go away!
jim laguardia December 10, 2012 at 12:49 AM
Stalk much?? Luca or sensation or whatever you are calling yourself now?
sebastian dangerfield December 10, 2012 at 01:17 AM
im just pointing out your hypocrisy.
jim laguardia December 10, 2012 at 01:34 AM
Did you see the car? It's a pimpmobile. My comment was totally ON topic. Go back to your political rants on dog stories.
Gerald M. Gaynor December 10, 2012 at 11:40 AM
I’m always glad to see that our hardworking volunteers are on the job and doing it well. That being said, "classic car” wasn't the first description that occurred to me…

Luca "sebastien": You live in ridgefield. What do you care about the monroe volunteer fire department?
sebastian dangerfield December 10, 2012 at 10:12 PM
christine e Nothing--I dont. Apparently you cant read--i was pointing out what a hypocrite jim laguardia is. But the shoe fits on you as well? You are continually on Ridgefield patch. I dont set any boundaries. Can you explain, why you think you can, and what they are? I was in Monroe this year. And I have a friend who has lived there for 15 years. So, does that mean Christine will grant me monroe patch rights?
sebastian dangerfield December 10, 2012 at 10:15 PM
jim Are you ok?? First you tell me to 'go away" -when you think im off topic, and now you are saying "Go back to your political rants on dog stories." Man--I so want to please you Jim!! Yet (sniff, sniff) everything I do, you tell me to do the opposite. (snif) Jim--everyone wants to make sure they conform to your wishes. But, ya just gotta let me know, man. Sigh.
jim laguardia December 10, 2012 at 10:41 PM
first of all no one (except christine) has any idea what you are talking about, because this a Monroe story so you came to this patch to do what exactly stalk me? put me in my place? you are a person who goes on stories (shared between local patches) about dogs and rants about politics. i on the other hand made a joke
Chris K. December 10, 2012 at 11:47 PM
LOL...I wouldn't call that a "classic" car...it's more like a pimped out early 80s Caddy. Great job by Monroe VFD, made for some interesting viewing while having my Egg McMuffin across the street.
sebastian dangerfield December 11, 2012 at 03:53 AM
jim I told you , I am pointing out your hypocrisy. Since every time you (YOU) feel that people are going off topic you mention it, I decided to see if and when you go off topic. Talking about pimping , when the subject was a restored car being extinguished, is off topic. (yes, i understand what you are talking about. But, if you can tell people to go away, and fail to see the association to politics, then I can choose to fail to see the association of the appearance of the car, and saluting firefighters for their achievment.) To wit--just dont read the comments by people (me) you have no interest in. I dont read comments by lots of people.....just put me on that list. God knows you are on mine.
jim laguardia December 11, 2012 at 12:46 PM
What a clown.... So much material from one post that is comical. First you post under two names with the same ridiculous picture, then you hunt me down on the Monroe patch and quote my comments from other stories (shared amongst local patches) THEN claim you don't read my posts, and then moments after hitting submit you go back to the story about pets and rant about the auto bailout.... That is some funny funny stuff ............. Check and mate
Christine E. December 11, 2012 at 02:10 PM
Luca, I have lived in ridgefield for my entire life. I still work in the area. Ive lived in monroe for the last 3 years. My entire family still lives in ridgefield and i keep up on the stories there because they are still relevent to myself and to my family. I dont creep on the page to stalk random people like you seem to do. You are all over the darien patch from what i gather, too. So, im not sure what your deal is. I seldom defend what jim laguardia says, but what youre attempting to do is juvenile.
Dayguy December 11, 2012 at 11:05 PM
Also, nice job with the camera, Mr. Hossler. Great photographs. You were really "Johnny-On-The-Spot"!
sebastian dangerfield December 12, 2012 at 01:08 AM
jim if you think that by you telling me to go away--- and then me posting -that you won.... thats awesome. I hunted you down, (for the 6th time) to point out your hypocrisy. Im sure some of your other posts exhibit an even greater example of the mediocrity that goes hand-in hand with living in Monroe. haha.
sebastian dangerfield December 12, 2012 at 01:11 AM
christine here is the thing---when people tell me what is right and wrong--I want to see if they follow the rules they set for others. Christine E feels as though she gets to post on ridgefield patch because of xxx reason. Thats fine. Post on 100 towns patch. I dont care. The fact that you know I post on Darien patch (for the same reason you post on ridgefield,) simply tells me that you must stalk ?
jim laguardia December 12, 2012 at 04:20 AM
By now I am pretty sure the mediocre people of Monroe, one of whom you claim to be friends with below (the problem is you make up so many stories you have trouble keeping up with all of them) agree with me when I say again to you ...... GO AWAY
Christine E. December 12, 2012 at 01:10 PM
Jim, i have no Idea who he is other than the fact i see him post regulay on ridgefield patch, and everyone hates him there, too :)
Christine E. December 12, 2012 at 01:12 PM
I post on articles that are relevant to me and my way of life. You comment on articles to intentionally annoy people. Big difference.
jim laguardia December 12, 2012 at 02:03 PM
Christine the funny thing is, I have only said "you people" go away after they hi-jack a story about pets or something I don't THINK I have ever said for him to go away. But in a sense he has won because we engaged in his conversation :-(
Christine E. December 12, 2012 at 05:05 PM
wahhh, we fail.
jim laguardia December 12, 2012 at 10:52 PM
sebastian dangerfield December 13, 2012 at 04:35 AM
really christine? It seems as though you addressed me first? What relevance is there in your way of life to my pointing out that jim laguardia is a hypocrite (and now ABSOLUTELY YOU). you see, christine, you 'took me on' --which is ok..... thats what i did in this case, with jim. But, somehow you think that you are justified, and Im not. I hope you can see, that you cannot really make a great case for this. Jim kept telling me I should "go away" -- you as well. And then you tell me Im out to annoy people? Nope--I am fixated on politics. Maybe you and jim are not. But, that doesnt mean I intend to annoy people, or that jim or you get to be the patch police. Feel free to go on ridgefied, ---stalk me on darien--and come back to monroe. I dont tell people what sites are off limits -as though you own this website. To me--when you tell me to get off the site that you feel you own--is not'relevant' its meant to take me on.
sebastian dangerfield December 13, 2012 at 04:41 AM
Jim, yes, as usual, you feel as though you get to detemine the content of each page on patch. In this case, about firemen, you have engaged in a conversation about ---me. This isnt new. You feel that you are a patch policeman. And my point is, that I feel that you can say anything you want, at any time. So, I will applaud your recognition that you are able to see how easy it is to digress. And perhaps you should consider this, before monitoring patch sites and shouting :go away. And which part did I make up? That i have a friend in monroe? I have a friend in monroe....he hates it there...but he went too often to foxwoods, and now, is relinquished to living with a bunch of losers, like christine. He knows the town sucks. Im not dissing him. He made a mistake and is paying for it, by living in monroe. ahhaahha
Joe December 13, 2012 at 11:26 PM
Jim laguardia embarrasses Monroe and all the residents who live here... Jim are you ever not commenting on things? Get a life guy and step away from the Patch for more then 8 minuets.
jim laguardia December 14, 2012 at 12:41 AM
Ha ha that is funny, another person who tracks me down on the patch to try and bother me and Shocker does not use a real name and has apparently NEVER posted before (or more likely just under a different name)... Glad you took the time to find me. Have a great night
