Weird call

This is the weirdest call I have had in a while. I got a 911 call. The guy says there is fire in the woods along the road and wants to know if there is a Jack that works with forest services. Okay first we don't refer to ODNR as "forest" services. We don't have so called forests in Ohio or atleast this area. Then he can't tell me what road he is on. He wants to just hang up and I want to say that my crystal ball is a little foggy tonight and I need some more info. So I try to ask more questions and he says that he will call me back and then says it close to the mine pit.. What mine pit.? Where on Earth is this guy calling from so I ask if he is in Ohio and he says that he's from Ohio. So I ask what state he is in and he says Minnesota...How a Minnesota 911 got to SW Ohio I don't know. I guess we are having some major problems tonight. Sometimes this happens if when lines are cut.. Wowza... ~Cathy

Okay, that was just plain weird. I didn't even know you were a 911 operator!

That is strange...and scary. Imagine the time that was lost by calling the wrong STATE.
