It doesn't cost the State or Town anything. It costs the TAX PAYERS, it's not the States money it's the tax payers money. Santa Fe thinks nothing about spending our money for a rail system that is failing, for a space port that the average person will never be able to use. So stop already about how much a fire costs and report on how well the fire fighters and other forces did a great job of battling the blaze without loss of life. Great job guys and gals of the Silver City Fire dept and all the others who pitched in to help.
