From preventing a huge fire to rescuing a suicidal person, our firemen deserve nothing but love and respect. 

However, our firemen have also dealt with some rather bizarre situations

Apart from having to free stuck penises, firemen also face attacks from the very people they serve.

Earlier this year, an American woman living in Mont Kiara pepper-sprayed a total of 13 policemen and firemen after her landlords tried to change the locks on the doors of her rented apartment.

In the latest comical incident, a woman called the Damansara Fire and Rescue Department yesterday, 4 September, to remove a tiny lizard from her condominium unit on Jalan Tropicana Utara, Petaling Jaya

A report of the incident revealed that the woman had made a call regarding a "huge monitor lizard" in her neighbour's room.

To the firemen's surprise, the "monitor lizard" turned out to be a tiny, thumb-sized lizard.
