Firefighter fakes emergency to propose to girlfriend

firefighter proposal

Houston, Texas (WTNH) — When Houston Police Officer Olga Peck was dispatched to help out on a fire call she did not expect that her firefighter boyfriend, Jesse Gonzalez, would be waiting at the scene with an engagement ring.

There was no fire. Gonzalez, an 11-year Houston Fire Department veteran, staged a fake fire call Wednesday to propose to Peck. His fellow firefighters helped Gonzalez put on a convincing show, producing smoke and appearing with him in their uniforms.

When Peck arrived, she found two firetrucks with alarms screeching parked outside a smoky house. Gonzalez emerged from the house in full firefighting gear, walked up to Peck, got down on one knee, produced a diamond ring and asked her to marry him.

She said yes.
