I’ll bet your least favorite house fire is a hoarder house. They’re tough to navigate, have lots of fuel, and can hide some nasty surprises. If you haven’t dealt with one yet, you will. Compulsive Hoarding Disorder is a psychological mental condition that affects up to five percent of adults and the number is growing. My guest on this show wrote the book on fighting fires in hoarder houses. Ryan Pennington is a Firefighter/Paramedic for the Charleston West Virginia Fire Department. He’s currently assigned to Station 8 and is part of the West Virginia Task Force 1 USAR team. With over 15 years of combined Fire, Rescue and EMS experience, Ryan teaches firefighter safety around the country.
