    So let me get this straight, you burned pallets inside your building, on purpose?

    Fast response by Putnam firefighters saves building

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

    PUTNAM -- Quick work by firefighters minimized the damage after a fire broke out in a building used to store wooden pallets at a Powhattan Street business Monday afternoon.

    The fire was reported in a rear storage building at the Acorn Custom Pallet & Box Co. LLC at 127 Powhattan St. shortly before 1:30 p.m., according to Putnam Fire Marshal Normand Perron.

    Putnam Fire Department Captain Robert Campbell, the first officer on the scene, said flames were shooting out windows of the concrete building when the first apparatus reached the scene within five minutes of the alarm being sounded.

    "It was burning too hot to allow us to get a crew inside immediately," Campbell said. He said firefighters were able to open doors on the outside of the building to get at the piles of burning wood pallets inside the storage area.

    Once the fire was knocked down, a forklift was used to remove the still-smoldering piles of pallets outside where firefighters could wet them down.

    Perron said Ronald Fosiey, owner of the company, told him he had burned some pallets in a separate section of the building on Friday to create heat to dry out the other pallet materials before completing construction of the pallets.

    Perron said he suspects when the building was opened Monday, oxygen may have energized embers that were still smoldering from the Friday burning, creating sparks that ignited the piles of completed or partially constructed pallets.

    He said the investigation of the fire will continue.

    Firefighters from East Putnam assisted Putnam firefighters bring the fire under control in about an hour.

    No injuries were reported.

    The burning (no pun intended, well maybe there was a little bit of intenton) question in my mind is did the fire do what it was intended to do, which was dry out the other pallets and materials?

    12Truck,
    I think his idea worked a little too well!

    The Hollywood producers like these "Reality" shows; why don't they put some of these stories on for comody... Never mind - would give other idiots great ideas.
