Another day, another fire...

Driving out of town to see the snow this afternoon, we were sorry to see most of Thanet's fire service in Royal Road, Ramsgate, tackling an upper-floor fire in one of the buildings across the road from the Artillery Arms. At least three engines and the long extended hose snorkel tower thingy, as well as a couple of fire officers' cars, and buckets of steam and smoke. I didn't see any ambulances, so fingeers crossed for a property-only incident... they're all still there as I type, so it's taking an hour or two to get under control by the looks of it.

It's would not be Thanet without the trademark burnt down buildings now would it. If this was a work of fiction there would be a group of shadow like characters slowly but surely doing something that no one will realise until it is too late or that the hero will foil in the nick of time. Lacking hero's in the area I guess we shall have to wait for th former ending...

There seems to be a permanent aroma of burning on the Isle now.
