just a boring news story about fires

We've had a strange and welcome slump in fire calls around the area for the last year or so. Well, the slump is over. If I was paranoid I'd say it's because I've gotten busy doing other things, but the number of fires around here is starting to rise again. More likely the rise was caused by the unusually cold weather, which brings out the various genius heating methods. I only made two of the calls I write about in this article; I dispatched another of them. In a way dispatching is actually harder, because you have to multitask more. On the other hand, few people get killed or maimed in dispatch centers, unless you count strokes and heart attacks. :-)

(About the first fire: There's nothing more frustrating for a firefighter than not being able to find the frakking fire.)



Five fires; news stories tend to make them sound less interesting than they really are.Collapse )
