Had the home owner not heard of a stop tap?! Or if the pipe was not within that surely local water board/emergency plumber more suitable.

Not sure this is the kind of emergency that the firefighters should be attending too,smacks of them being called as the easiest/cheapest option but not necessarily the right one
