    AHHHHHHHHHHHHH (banging head on desk.....)

    You know what.....I admit to occasionally "forgetting" to wear my mask on a car fire.....But if I were the administrator of these fooking moron's workmans comp/IOD health care, and they came to me with an injury, I would tell them to go scratch.

    The Chief of this Department needs to resign, immediately.

    Buncha dummies. Spraying water on the fuel just spread it around. They needed foam. Not to mention PPE.....

    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Uhhh...

    You just know that the officer (white shirt) didn't anticipate this thing...

    He was only there to look good, and look-good while looking good.

    I don't think objective was met.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hey, "red shorts", run over here and then run over there and act like you're doing something.

    Hey, "Beard Man", I want you to hold the hose behind the pump and point and yell at people.

    Hey you guys on that other truck.... lay out your longest hose... yes all 1000 feet...hurry up... the vette hasn't burned yet...

    Remember guys... we got to end this by 0430... we still got to save that slab on 1st Street.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Anyone here want to fess up and yell us how it ended?

    Looks like a control burn to me. Just trying to get rid of some of that brush near by to ensure no wildfires hit the area. They're just thinking way ahead of all of us...

    Great tactics.

    If the key is in the on position the fuel pump will keep pumping till it runs out of gas or the power is stopped..
    Bring enough hose.

    Most folks wouldn't have a problem believing it was staged for its comedy value. Unfortunately.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Corvette = Training burn

    Mustang = Epic tragedy
    My wise and profound comments and opinions are mine alone and are in no way associated with any other individual or group.
