    My bad...I over-looked that disturbance in the force...

    Yep, and a third group is totally ignorant and ignores the problem altogether.


    The sad part is the Fire Department claims there is no water supply and that is why the structure burned down. The truth is a huge failure to plan.
    And that is a fact. There are some excellent posts here, and I think most of the people get the idea: We don't know exactly what happened here, but it doesn't matter. Failure to prepare is a problem that plagues so, so many fire departments in this country, and - particularly in rural districts - water supply planning is one of the most neglected areas.
