Fiery Debate

Hot Cross Burn

German firemen have been branded the worst in the world after their own fire station burned to the ground. All six fire engines were destroyed in the £3 million blaze in Syke and it took 250 firemen from nearby towns to finally bring the inferno under control.

FOOTNOTE: Go to blazes.

It reminds me of a saying we have here. " The Plummer's wife is always without water"!

I had to laugh at this one, because we had a similar situation in our county...seems while the Fire Dept was having their Christmas Party a few years back, someone left a coffee pot plugged in...yep, burned the little old station to the ground! Party ON!

Ouch! Hope the community has the resources to rebuild and that appropriate safety measures are put into place. Wonder what started the blaze.

Cheers!

Very interesting. I feel sorry for the firemen -- I wonder where they were when the fire broke out? Thanks for sharing.

Hah! I saw that in a Three Stooges movie once, but for it to happen in real life? Amazing.
