Burning, not frying

The problem with living in a hilly area is that you have to go up and down the hills. That’s fine if you’re in a car, but running up and down is a different matter. I did a lot of that, conveying messages from the site of the pile burn up to the hydrant on the street, and back again. It’s not easy in those overalls.

We managed to break one hydrant, and had to run out extra lengths of hose to reach the next one. It’s lucky the wonderful guys from Castle Hill fire station were there, even if they were nearly two hours late because they were out on calls.

    How the hell did you manage to break a hydrant? Aren’t they huge metal things?

    That may need a posting of its own to explain!
