I drove to the fire in engine one. We screamed across town with heavy metal music blaring from the radio.
By the time of our arrival, the fire was under control. I wandered around talking to various people, including an ambulance crew that had worked Wednesday's mass casualty incident. After a while, one of the department's officers gave me some tarps and sent me up to the scene.
The fire had consumed parts of a trailer home. The fire could have been very serious due to the very close proximity to a farmhouse and barn.
We were cleared from the scene and made it back to the school before the meal started.
rabidkitten, O1, O2, and my parents attended the supper. They had a good time, and the FFs were all pleased to meet my family.
