"Neenah-Menasha Fire Rescue"
That sounds like a taunt from an immature sibling.
/ Also, would a farker from Europe, Asia, or the Middle East please give me your opinion on whether something less than 150 years old can be truly historic?

The nice thing about torching a paper mill is that you don't have to bring lighter fluid. Just drop a lit match pretty much anywhere and poof, you got yourself an epic paper mill fire.

I don't know.  Mr Wentworth just told me to come in here and say that there was trouble at the mill, that's all.  I didn't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition.

The good news is that 90% of it was undamaged.
