You never know. It's always possible a bunch of terrorists posing as fire fighters, complete with fire truck, are trying to sneek into the US.

Firefighters from Quebec said they were held up at the Rouses Point border crossing while trying to provide mutual aid to firefighters battling flames at the Anchorage Inn Sunday.

Lacolle and St. Paul fire officials said several members of their squad didn't have proper photo identification and were held up for close to 15 minutes while trying to reach the fire. Fire officials also said border agents inspected some of the fire trucks.

Rouses Point fire officials said they called Customs and Border Protection to let them know firefighters would be crossing from Canada, but the crews were still held up.
