Just curious - why do you have a happy face icon with this thread? Didn't someone's house burn?"This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

Just struck me as odd that a FF would put a happy face with an article about a house burning."This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

One time a dozen or so years ago, a neighboring dept. that we auto-aid with had a residential fire at a pretty remote area. When I showed up I took a look at the place and said "this place is BIG" the *** chief said it was 8,000 sq. ft. I took a look at the equipment on scene and said "This place is going to burn down". There was no way the water supply in the area could keep up with a three story mansion fire that started in the basement and was coming through the living room floor as first units arrived. What amazed me as I walked around this place and noticed seven major heat exchangers, a propane tank big enough for a distribution tank, and a huge swimming pool was that the owner and builder didn't factor in fire protection to the house. Money was obviously not a problem, hell he could have sunk an extra well and ran an auto fire pump off of it to a sprinkler system that would have saved the house, or just setup a firepump from the pool to charge it. Seems like if the owner and builder were oblivious to this that the insurance company would have been on the ball with it...
