    Maybe not so funny is this:

    The other day a neighbouring dept was paged to a home structure fire. The address was called in by a neighbour on another street, so directions were kind of sketchy. When the IC arrived on scene, I believe his initial report was something like:

    "... it appears to be a mobile home, and yep its buring real good.." or words to that effect.
