The Firefighter Special Edition Mini Series
“Sergeant Germán Echeverría wasn’t afraid of fire. As a child, he loved to light his
father’s cigarettes, he liked that so particular smell of suffer which comes from
just lit matches. His mother always said, “Don’t play with fire or you are going to
wet your bed”.
In the fall, he amused himself by making bonfires with his friends and then by
throwing handfuls of salt on the flames, listening fascinated by the crackling of the
salt. One night, after having burned all the fallen leaves in his yard, he dreamed
that he was near a large tree and suddenly he had a horrible urge to pee which he
did calmly and with great pleasure. The following morning, upon awaking, he made
the most important decision of his life: from now on, he would combat fire without
pity. He went to firemen’s school and today he is the Fire Chief of his neighborhood
fire department. Everyone knows him as the “The Match”.”
