'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Consummate professionals

On Jan. 18, a lit fireplace in the office of my plumbing business on Penn Avenue in the Strip caused the second floor of my building to catch fire. After I noticed thick smoke in the office as well as smoke exiting the roof, I notified my alarm company and it immediately called the Pittsburgh Fire Bureau's Station No. 6.

Within minutes, these brave men arrived. The chief and firefighters immediately approached me. Right away, I knew I was in good hands! They demonstrated the utmost respect and concern for my property with advanced professionalism.

Thanks to them, only minimal damage was done and the blaze was quickly extinguished. I could not have been more impressed with the way the entire City of Pittsburgh staff conducted themselves. From the firefighters to the arson squad to the paramedics and police, they all handled the problem as consummate professionals, and I have gained newfound admiration for their level of work.

I am most grateful for the fact that none of these brave men and women was harmed! I thank you all so much for reacting quickly and saving my building and surrounding buildings!
