    And by the way George, your explanation was great. As I said earlier, your knowledge is vast but you sometimes have the people skills of a wolverine on crack

    When our Dept. arrived on scene,the only visible sign that there was possibly a fire was a dark line of soot from the window on side "b" all of the way to the peak of the roof. The window on side "b" that I am referring to was the window in the room were the fire started. When we entered the upstairs the screen on the window that was broke had so much soot on it you could not see through it. If that window did break during the fire, I would think that it would of fueled the fire?

    I wasn't there. I provided a general answer. There are a hundred variables as to the role of the window in this incident.

    A screen in the window cuts doen the air flow through the window significantly. If it was clogged early in the fire, that could account for the lack of airflow to cause the fire to continue to burn.

    Words misspelled in georges posts or improper english/ grammatical errors.

    A screen in the window cuts doen the air flow through the window significantly. -misspelled down

    I note with great interest that you failed to note that I was actually theonly one who even answered his question. -no space between "theonly"

    As anyone with even a minimal amount of fire service eperience knows, furniture fires are notoriously smoky. -misspelled experience, smokey

    This somldering fire will also gobble up most of the available oxygen in the room. -misspelled smoldering

    As the oxygen level is deplted, the amount of heat energy put out by the burning upholstery is reduced. -misspelled depleted

    when he entered the house, all surfaces were covered with a coating of soot. -did not capitalize "when"

    If sufficient air is not available to the fire in the incipient stages, the ire will lose more enrgy than it creates, causing it to eventually go out. - even a preschooler will tell you that you need an f to spell fire

    But the idiotic way youtype your posts and the underlying attitide tells me that you are trying to be inciteful. - no space between "youtype"

    I am thinking of a saying about glass houses. Just an observance. As stated before, I would think that someone as eduacted as you always like to tell us you are, would know that there are people from all walks of life performing this job. I would think that somewhere in your career you would have had a chance to review ideas on basic courtesy, sympathy or at least theories in instrcutional techniques. Get off of your high horse and join the rest of the people that are here to learn, teach and exchange ideas.

    Wow! you caught all kinds of mistakes! You're good.

    First of all, my reference to this person's "typing" had nothing to do with spelling and grammar. It had everything to do with the style of typing, which is typical of a high school blogger. But you keep on looking for the insignficant little typos and miss the fact that I am the only one who actually answered the kids' question.

    No high horse. Nobody that I like or have respect for ever seems to complain about my "people skills". Kids I teach in school never seem to complain about the instructional techniques I use. Well...there is the one guy that I threw out of my class because he was talking on his cell phone, but I digress...

    I have also carefully reviewed your post. I have come to the conclusion that I really don't care what you think, either.

    "I have a dream. It's not a big dream, it's just a little dream. My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."
