What makes the differance where they are from? The fire was ruled an accident, it was due to faulty wiring. Why are everyone stupid? These are good people, they work hard, and all have families. The only thing that makes people dangerous is ignorance. If you all are so worried about the gas piplines and the danger it caused then why not question why the 911 worker put the gentelman on hold for 5 min after he said that there was smoke coming from the ceiling, or why it took the fire dept. 25 min to get there! My goodness it was only a gas station on fire, guess that was not of importance, he was told they where on other calls. Maybe we should all find out the facts before we say such stupid things. I am gratefull for the fire dept. as they did a great job of putting it out once they got there. They had the cold/wind, plus the danger of the gas pumps. We just should not judge people because of where they come from.

HAVE EVER SEEN A PIPELINE EXPLOSION?
MAYBE THEY ARE RELATED TO THE GUY THAT TRIED TO BLOW UP THE AIRPLANE.

They are from India not africa, and no they are not related to that person. I do know this as I am the wife and mother of his daughter. And no I am not from India, I am born and raised here in DSM.
