It was awful to see the first signs of smoke, then the first house begin to burn on the roof, a man fighting to save his house to the left of the first house with a hose, then in awe to watch the second house be consumed by fire while everyone stood around like pillars of salt. Look into history - people ran with buckets of water to save property. Your volunteer firefighters were too far away, also lacked training - this is the 21 century - tall dry grass can be easily mowed short before it gets too long, water trucks can be on call, people in town should have some knowledge to get a start on fighting any fires near or in town till the volunteers get there - it's obvious there is a lot of wind to tend with in case of fire. Where is the town of Arlington, Oregons thinking caps. Two homes burned to the ground - the tears and heartaches of the owners. My heart weeps for them.
