  1. Another house burnt down before the Fire Service reaches. Not surprised. Once Emergency vehicles hv to stop to climb speed bumps along a main road, valuable seconds will be lost to save life and property.

  2. I never hear the fire service save any house that ever catches on fire. what’s the reason for calling them.

  3. The houses are highly flammable and burn very quickly. They are also very small, so it is no wonder they are completely burnt before the fire brigade arrives. If no one was home though, how did the fire start? Hmmmmm…

  4. @ meme just because of “A fireman’s timetable”.
    Home fire started :
    – 10 seconds ago – a glass of water will put it out
    – 1 minutes ago – you will need (at least !) a full bucket of water
    – 10 minutes ago – the fire squad will empty it’s fire truck load on it
    – 20 minutes ago – all you can expect (hope for !!!) from a complete fire brigade tapping from several fire hydrants is to prevent the blaze from engulfing the nearby buildings and properties…
