Dr.Fey: "Fire chief injured by rounds of ammunition going off from inside"


It's his own fault for eating ammunition.

I wonder if they'd have been able to save the thing were it not for everyone having to high-tail it away from random ammunition exploding.  I keep hearing guns are supposed to protect the home.  Not in this case I guess.

While driving to work this morning I saw a cigarette butt fly out of the car in front of me as it turned a corner.  Hit the ground then a gust of wind blew it off the road.  At the time just thought "asshole" and forgot about it.

Later I heard on the radio that we are in high fire risk conditions right now.  Wish I'd gotten the plate.

Depends on who you can tell.  Cops?  Yeah GFL there.  Rangers?  They take a different view.

.... that's a good question.  Tweet it?  Report it?  There have been fire engines rushing about all day, could be one was that butt.

Guns do protect the home; the ammo is another story altogether.

The problem is they caused the result by observing it.

Clearly they knew where the fire was but not how quickly it would spread.

They managed to save the second one from going up completely.  I'm just curious whether the one with the ammo in it was already more involved, or if it went up because they had to run away.
