station, capitol heights and no one was there. staffing cuts that started on sunday contributed to that. it started at 1:00 a.m. two volunteer firefighters responded to a fire and on their way back, they smelled a smell and when thy got back to the station, the smoke and flames broke out. no one was there and they went to the next station. that's actually five to six miles away. it took them eight minutes to respond here. longer than it should have taken had it been capitol heights responding. even here at the boulevard height's station, they've had cuts of their own. >> the technician is responsible for checking the apparatus during the weekly and monthly checks of the vehicles. at nighttime on the weekends,
we don't have a technician. >> reporter: now, it's unclear if they had a technician, if they could have prevented the fire that started in the engine compartment. it doesn't look good and the cuts taking place, april 1st and they're feeling the affects at the station. and again, they were saying, eight minutes is what it took to get here and six minutes is the average. it was longer, he thought than it should have been to get someone there to fight the fire. no damage, just minor damage in the building bit. thank you. our other big story, the remains of a u.s. navy pilot are heading back to florida.

(announcer) for many with arthritis pain, not treating is not an option. all prescription nsaid pain relievers, like celebrex, ibuprofen and naproxen, lp treat arthritis pain
and have some of the same warnings. but since individual results may vary, having options is important. prescription celebrex has been the option for millions of patients for 10 straight years. just one 200-mg celebrex (once a day,) can provide dependable, 24-hour relief based on the available data, the fda stated that for certain patients celebrex's benefits outweigh the risks. if you are worried about stomach upset, you should know, in clinical studies, a lower percentage of patients taking celebrex reported stomach discomfort versus prescription ibuprofen and naproxen. and if you are taking low-dose aspirin for your heart and need an nsaid pain reliever, celebrex can be used because it doesn't interfere with the effects of low-dose aspirin. but when it comes to relieving your arthritis pain, you and your doctor need to balance the benefits with the risks. the fda requires all prescription nsaids, including celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam,
to have the same cardiovascular warning. ey all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors for it such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. all prescription nsaids, including celebrex, also increase the chance of serious skin reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. do not take celebrex if you're allergic to aspirin or sulfonamides. ask your doctor if you could benefit from celebrex. understand the risks. feel the benefits.
