    Default win will people learn

    you cant start fires with gasaline! In my training fires I use NO flambable luquids at all! only feed sacks (triple ply) and pallets. you will get roll over quicker than you can say "put on your air packs"

    if you must use a fuel, use diesel or karsine that does not release fumes (at room temp anyway)

    I think that I would see about getting spell check on my computer, if I were you fireflymedic. It sure would make your posts look better and we would be able to understand them as well.

    One of the first pointers i picked up in my 6 months in the department was definitly to use Kerosene at drills. (I don't start the fires/plan drills but members made it a point to tell me that it wasn't gasoline just becuase it's too dangerous).

    I'm glad he seemed to be okay. That could have ended up much worse for him.
