    One
    dark night outside of Westlake , a small town in Louisiana , a fire started
    inside the local chemical plant and in a blink of an eye it exploded into
    massive flames.
    The
    alarm went out to all the fire departments for miles around. When the
    volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the chemical company
    president rushed to the fire chief and said, 'All our secret formulas are in
    the vault in the center of the plant. They must be saved! I will give
    $50,000 to the fire department that &brings them out intact.'
    But
    the roaring flames held the firefighters off. Soon more fire departments had
    to be called in as the situation became desperate.
    As
    the firemen arrived, the president shouted out that the offer was now
    $100,000 to the fire department who could bring out the company's secret
    files.
    From
    a distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck came into sight. It
    was the nearby Cajun Hackberry Rural Township Volunteer Fire Company,
    composed mainly of Cajuns over the age of 65.
    To
    everyone's amazement, that little run-down fire engine roared right past all
    the newer sleek engines that were parked outside the plant.
    Without
    even slowing down, it drove straight into the middle of the inferno.
    Outside,
    the other firemen watched as the Hackberry old timers jumped off right in
    the middle of the fire and fought it back on all sides.
    It
    was a performance and effort never seen before.
    Within
    a short time, the Cajun old timers had extinguished the fire and had saved
    the secret formulas.
    The
    grateful chemical company president announced that for such a superhuman
    feat he was upping the reward to $200,000, and walked over to personally
    thank each of the brave fire fighters.
    The
    local KPLC TV news reporter rushed in to capture the event on film, asking
    the chief, 'What are you going to do with all that money?'
    'Whall,'
    said Boudreaux, the 70-year-old fire chief, 'Da first ting we gonna do is
    fix dem brakes on dat damn truck!'

    Driving to Cameron one night in heavy fog, visability about 20'. I got lost and ended up in Westlake. The first 3 people I asked couldn't tell me how to get to Cameron. I found a local cop and asked him and he wanted to know why I needed to go to Cameron. "To catch a workboat", I said. He seemed suspicious but gave me directions and I made it to Cameron in time to make my boat. I don't think very many people from Westlake used to go out of town except to hut, trap and fish in the marsh.

    They was just pulling your leg. You was lost, and they were enjoying watching. Even the 4 year olds in Westlake know were Cameron is!
