trying to make?
The hazards of small arm ammunition, even 30 cases worth (whatever size case
they happened to be) are grossly exaggerated by the media, and even among some
firefighters. Bullets do not zip around at high velocity and the powder does
not "explode". Normal firefighter turnout gear provides good
protection.Tests have repeatedly shown that small arms ammunition
poses almost no threat, and does almost nothing to spread or enhance a fire.
Look up "Sporting Ammunition and the fire fighter" to get the facts in a
very good video.More hazardous are common household items like
propane cylinders, cans of gas or gas tanks in lawn mower or snow blowers, or
aerosol cans or cans of paint.Regardless, any house fire is a
tragedy for the owners, and it is good that everyone is safe.
We saw the large smoke as we drove into Ogden, and two hours later after having
dinner, we saw it still smoking.We wondered, and now we know, why it
wasn't fought harder. 30 cases of ammo inside?Really? I guess the apocalypse did come for these folks. There are storage buildings
and an old fridge outside that home; it could have been stored in there.
ANYWHERE but in your home, preventing firefighters from saving your belongings.
