VIDEO: Sometimes fire departments run across what could become a future employee at the scene of a fire, but that doesn’t happen very often. Well, that’s just what happened at a recent Longview fire. But, it may be a while before he receives a paycheck since he’s six years old. When there’s a fire, it catches the neighborhood’s attention, but six-year-old Spencer Laster, who was home sick, was absolutely fascinated by the firefighters putting that fire out. “They come to fires, and they help out people whenever there’s a fire,” Spencer said. He says he’s been interested in firefighters since he was two years old. That’s well over half his life. “They have big trucks, and I love heights,” Spencer said. No fear of a ladder truck here or fear of the pressure of a fire hose. His reaction was pretty much the opposite. “Pretty fun actually,” Spencer said.
