Firemen burn down their own station

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

A funny thing happened in Germany this weekend. Austrian Times:
Bungling firemen have been branded the worst in the world after their own fire station burned to the ground.

All six fire engines perished in the 3 million GBP blaze in Syke, northern Germany, and it took 250 firemen from nearby towns to finally bring the inferno under control.

Investigators believe the fire fighters could have triggered the blaze themselves in a training exercise accident or that faulty wiring was to blame.

The weekend blaze was the second time the brigade has lost all its engines in a fire. The station was rebuilt in 1994 after being gutted by a fire.

"A fire service that can't even keep its own fire station and engines safe doesn't exactly inspire confidence," raged one local.
