VIDEO: TODAY'S TMJ4 has learned the Hales Corners Fire Department didn't have a single firefighter on duty Wednesday who could operate a fire truck. We were the first to tell you about the department's low wages of $11.25 an hour for part-timers and how they only had one firefighter on-duty on Labor Day. Now, the village is owning their latest mistake. The Hales Corners Fire Chief said a scheduling error is to blame for leaving only three part-time firefighters on duty Wednesday who weren't able to properly respond to a car fire. Shortly before noon on Wednesday, a car caught fire in the middle of an intersection on Highway 100 in Hales Corners. Given Hales Corners Fire Department's alleged scheduling error, they called on Greendale to pick up their slack.
