Fire on Thirlane

Fire on Thirlane Road the other day. I was working for Doug Hurd when we caught this fire. I will come out and say that I made a huge but not very costly mistake and learned my lesson. I reversed out from Engine 10 to a hydrant laying 900 feet of 5" hose on the ground. The mistake was that there was one 200' away from Engine 10 that I didn't see. Lesson learned.

Calm down and look around next time. You'll be ok.

That was part of the problem. I did look around. From the ground and distance I was standing, you could not see the hydrant behind the guardrail. I also could not remember a hydrant outside the fence of UPS. I did know where the ones inside were, but that was no help.
