It happened again. I'm having a bit more trouble feeling sorry for these people, considering they live in the exact same area where it happened before, so they should have at least been aware of the consequences of not having fire protection. Then again, I still feel that if the firefighters are showing up at these people's houses, they might as well do what they can and send a bill for the work. Quotes like this irritate me: "Firefighters arrived on the scene but as the fire raged, they simply stood by and did nothing." Also, the fact that the couple felt compelled to go back inside their burning home to save their possessions really adds to the absurdity of the situation, considering that, had they then become trapped inside the house, the firefighters would have helped them. Thus, in order to save a little money (and/or make their point), lives are being put in danger.
