    Firefighters let home burn

    The man apparently didn't pay the $25 yearly fee.

    Burnging down the house

    Carl Berg failed to pay a $25 annual fee for rural fire protection and, as a result, firefighters let his house burn to the ground last month near International Falls, Minn.

    Along with his daughter and a grandson, Berg escaped the fire, grabbing two rifles and a camcorder as he went.

    "I lost everything [else]," he said. "Stand and watch it burn was all I could do. ... They should have put the thing out, but they didn't."
