    Question World of Fire

    I recently looked into the "World of Fire Daily Report" forum and found that although you advertise this forum as a daily summary of fire reports worldwide, it appears to only feature United States reports. Am I missing the reports from outside of the USA? If this is in fact an USA only report then perhaps it should be listed as such.

    This is not meant to be a 'shot' at our American cousins, it is mearly to emphasise that there is a 'World" of fire service outside of the US borders.

    Chuxter,

    You asked if you're missing the reports from outside of the USA?

    Answer to your question is: "Yes"

    The World Of Fire Report does contain incidents from outside the USA. While the majority of incidents are reported from the US, there have been reports from Canada, the UK (London) and at times Mexico. Anyone in the world who would like to post an incident is welcome. All I ask when doing so is to provide the Date, Time, City, State/Province (Country), Address and any details you know about the fire.


    Here are some examples of incidents outside the US which appeared in past WOF reports:

    Hope that answers your question and hopefully in the future you'll see a lot more fires from outside the USA in the World Of Fire Report.
