A friend is telling me this story about how an engine company responds alone to a burning odor at a residence. It turns out to be a small electrical fire in behind an outlet. They cut the power and make sure there is no more active fire.
A neighbor, clearly trying to stir some shit up but not too bright a bulb, walks over.
“So, how many firemen does it take to put out a tiny fire?”
“Well, if it was your house and you’re worried about it burning down, how many firemen do you want showing up?”
“Maybe 8 or 9…”
