Irony at its most Dangerous - March 24, 2015

A Huge Fire Broke Out At A Fire Extinguisher Factory

(It can happen anywhere, are you covered)


Every so often there’s a news story that makes the headlines thanks to a delicious dose of irony.

Last night, a huge fire broke out at a commercial building. One of the businesses located inside was a factory that makes fire extinguishers.

Instead of using their own product to tackle the blaze, 150 fire fighters attended to the fire (probably preferring to use a hose) and managed to put it out shortly before midnight. Neighbours said they were able to see the glows of the flames in the surrounding area.

 

An effective fire alarm system would have alerted them before the fire took hold……. just some food for thought!
