The other evening I watched ''Four Corners''. The stark images that were shown brought home to me the absolute horror of these fires which by the way are still burning. I will not venture into my feelings re our government and the inaction as I will get into trouble . But what I must say is that much more in the way of resources for our fire fighters must be forth coming. One thing that I did find an accident waiting to happen was the instance of one fire truck being rendered immovable because the radiant heat had destroyed the hydraulic brake hoses and the brakes had locked on ,fortunately the crew were able to walk to safety. I hope that these brake hoses have been replaced with a type that does not melt .
