A WTAE-TV investigation found fire departments using air tanks that were potentially dangerous; the alarm bells that are supposed to warn firefighters they're low on air had a history of malfunctioning, leading to several deaths. The story came out of a case that involved a St. Louis firefighter receiving a $6 million settlement from Mine Safety Appliances, a Pittsburgh company that's one of the leading manufacturers of fire safety equipment.
