Y? Because They're Worth It...

Anybody who's willing to go up on a 60' ladder and force open windows with gallons of smoke pouring out into their face is worth at least £30,000 a year in my view. I knew a girl once (honest) that joined the Fire Brigade and she was put through the most intense tests and army like training to make sure she could hack it. Anywho, on to the story. On a quiet Friday evening my televisual viewing was interupted by the piercing sirens of the emergency services. Looking out of my kitchen window I thought, "Hmmm, the flat behind me is on fire". I have great pleasure in sharing with you all my images of this heroic action by the boys (and girls) in the big red trucks. I never saw anyone get treated by the ambulances which is always a good thing. All the action happened between 8.45pm and 9.15pm and then it took around another 45 minutes to clear the area.
