Hayward, California: Firefighter Giant - Muffler Man

The Fireman Muffler Man joined Bruce Kennedy's community of giants in March 2016. A bit of a hybrid, the custom-made 14-ft. tall figure is by Mark Cline in Virginia.

Incendiary chili pepper taunts Hayward firefighter.

Firefighter Giant

We have a new fireman statue, just put him up today.

We have some statues out at the beauty shop still. It will be a couple month before they are all back.

[Bruce Kennedy, 03/08/2016]

Bruce Kennedy asked Mark Cline to create the highly customized firefighter. It was shipped from Virginia to join Bruce's collection of Muffler Men and other fiberglass giants. Currently staged in the lot at Bell Plastics, a humongous, incendiary pepper seems to taunt the fireman.
