Water Pressure - Universal Studios fire?
I don't mean to be a S/A, and I may be missing something here, but LOW water PRESSURE? Isn't that what PUMPING ENGINES are used for...to INCREASE prssure? Water SUPPLY was not mentioned...only pressure.
At one point, Sunday's fire was two city blocks wide, and low water pressure forced firefighters to get reserves from lakes and ponds on the 400-acre property. The blaze was contained to the back lot, but burned for more than 12 hours before the final flames were extinguished.
"The water pressure situation was a challenge," Los Angeles County Fire Chief Michael Freeman said. "This fire moved extremely fast."
