Fire station burns after cooking mishap
ThuJan29, 10:25amET
TOKYO (Reuters) – A blaze broke out at a fire station in Japan this week after a firefighter left a cooking stove burning as crew members left the station to respond to emergency calls.

Most of the duty staffers were out on a call when their colleague, alone at the station and cooking dinner for the crew, was himself called out.

In his haste to respond to the call, he forgot to turn the stove off, said Seiji Hori, a Nagoya City Fire Department official. Ten fire trucks from other stations put out the fire, Hori added.

"We are an institute that should be in a position to educate people about fire, so we are extremely sorry that such an incident happened," Hori said, adding that they would consider ordering-in for dinner from now on.

Too funny, and sad.

In the little townI grew up in we had an all volunteer fire department, so the station wasn't manned all the time. The small farm town had two and at one time 3 bars though. :dude: One night the bar right next to the fire station caught on fire and burned to the ground. Kind of shows you response time wasn't great. :shock:
