Well done to the brave men and women of the fire service.
Takes guts to enter a building on fire, in order to search / rescue / extinguish the blaze.

Shame about the TERRIBLE music on that video though!!

P.S.
Note to the Government...
I wholly recommend taking away their (fire fighters) pensions, ,cutting the number of fire fighters by compulsory redundancy, closing fire stations and paying them peanuts.
It's quite clear these people are not needed!

FRS bravery never doubted but one wonders why the tanning shop burst into flames. Done to a toast, maybe?

Maybe they didn't turn the people over when they were "done" on one side?
Its a bit like the timely Toast rhyme;
Theres an art of knowing when,
Never try to guess,
Just wait until it smokes and then,
Thirty seconds less....
