A Burton firefighter was suspended without pay after he allegedly pulled a gun on two people over a fireworks dispute while he was off-duty. Rachel Duker says on the Saturday after the Fourth of July holiday she and her fiancee were cleaning up fireworks debris in their front yard when a man pulled into her driveway to confront them. The man, upset they were lighting fireworks, lives on Sandy Lane just one street over from Rachel's home on Surrey Lane. "He says he had to work in the morning so we both apologized," Duker said. But that apology didn't end the argument. It only escalated when another person got involved. "As we were kind of going back and forth with him, a woman pulls up and she jumps out of her car. She runs into my yard," Duker said.
