I spent most of the weekend burning things, as my fire department had an old house to train in, and then remove, to make way for an office. On Monday we burned down a large shed in the area. Public service for them, training for us. Having been to quite a few of those training burns over the years, I've come to the conclusion that there's a very fine line, indeed, between firefighters and arsonists. The trick is to not let any of the people who cross that line onto the fire department.
The other trick, I discovered just this weekend, is to make sure the fire department's expensive digital camera doesn't get too close to the flames, but luckily only my hand was singed.
