Firemen guy I know says they cannot save most buildings and try to save adjacent ones. Also says that people whose places were "saved" wish they had burned to the ground totally. Less insurance hassles evidently. He was on one call and a homeowner asked the firemen to make a trip around the block and come back later. Hmmmm.... Main thing is to save people, not property.

For the life of me, I can't understand the logic of sending firefighters into/onto a burning building...unless the saving of a life is reasonably assured without endangering the life of a firefighter.

It really irked me several years ago when 4 Boston firefighters died in an abandoned building fire. Apparently, the reason they were sent in was because an arsonist could possibly still have been trapped inside.
