You should pay, your story doesn't make much sense and I hope I don't have to live in a building with tenants like you.

In every encounter I've ever had with the fire department where they've forced entry, there's always more broken than is necessary. It's fine, but firefighters definitely do not try to minimize what gets broken when they need to use force. If you work for the FD, I'm sure that you've been in these situations way more than I have and my generalization might not be true in your experience.

Assuredly your fault - the FD did what they had to do in order to alleviate an immediate safety hazard. As others have said smell of gas == gas in the air == life safety threat.

Wow this is a tough one. Well I think that you should pay, because you left the smell inside. You should have open the windows before going to the gym so that the smell could have been out. Now I do not blame the Fire Department, because they smell the gas and thought that you left it on even though they were told that you turned it off. Let me give you a great example. If you were next to a neighbor and if you smell fire from the next door, you will get scared and call the fire department. They may have told you that everything is ok. However you will definitely call the FDNY because you smell the gas or the smell of fire or you wouldn't call?

Whats wrong with you. Not once did you mention that you OPENED every window in the apartment to let the smell out, then proceed with you normal everyday life.

Opening a window is fairly easy, why did you not think of that??, because if I was your neighbor and I smelled gas from your apartment I would have called the Fd and make then break all your windows to lets the smell out......

Moderator cut: Personal attack You left your closed apartment filled with flammable gas, closed windows and then blame the fire department for breaking the lock on the window. Get out your checkbook and pay for the damage YOU caused.
