He first started turning strips of hose into stars and stripes in 2015 ... a simple firehouse decoration that caught on like, well, like wildfire& "i've got order just blowing up."

Now, they are displayed all across the country& including the local burger joint where paul takes his family ... he's made more than one hundred flags&many commissioned&ea ch unique.

This one&commemora tees a firefighter's life, using a hose he once used.

"you get thes tears in the hose, you get burn marks in the house."
