First of all, golf clap for the headline and have a +1
Second of all, what's the deal with cities trying to out-alarm each other in fires lately?  That Boston one was like what, 9 alarms?  Isn't there a limit?
And of course, hopefully everyone is ok.

Don't forget that big fire in Houston a couple of days ago and the one in San Francisco.

No, there is no limit (And we go over this in ever fire thread)

The number of alarms is the number of Fire Houses that are called to respond

I was going to ask what this "alarm" system was all about, but decided to google it instead of asking here.

Definition:
A common misconception is that a "three-alarm fire," for example, means that three firehouses responded to the fire. This is not the rule behind the naming convention.

Put a pin on the map for each location. Find the locus. There's your arsonist.

Also, should point out that the fire looks to be out at this point. No big plumes of smoke rising anymore.

I like that he left off the rest of the definition

"This is not the rule behind the naming convention, although some cities may use the number of firehouses responding for multi-alarm designations because that is the simplest way to determine an alarm number. A three alarm fire means that there was a serious accident. For example, someone could have died or been injured.
The most widely used formula for multi-alarm designation is based on the number of units "

/I was partially wrong, Should have used "Unit" instead of "House", but still
