Yeah. The main site of the fire was an unfinished building site.

Wow.... What can a firefighter even do to manage something like that?

Containment is about all they will be shooting for on this one.

Sit back on top of the 4" hose and throw water at it from a long distance.  Manage any spread as best you can and wait for it to burn out.

I wonder what their water supply situation is out there.

Back off, set a defensive line.

Wasn't on duty, but got a look at it from the top of a parking garage several miles southeast of the fire. It was simply incredible! The fire occurred next to a complex that is home to the local government buildings including the main police station. Unreal.

Unfinished structures like that go up crazy fast. Basically a large scale version of the wooden UL test crib.

Yeah, they torched a complex under construction in San Diego back in 2003.  Caused $50 million in damages as I recall and was traced back to the "Earth Liberation Front" or some such load of bull.

Damn! The wife and I were at a Taste of Tempe food festival at Tempe Diablo Stadium yesterday afternoon and I saw the gigantic smoke plume off to the east. Didn't see the news or open the laptop at all yesterday so I knew nothing about this!!


We've always got a pallet factory or chemical yard going up in flames it seems.
