Does the story really mean that the fire was extinguished and the building evacuated BEFORE the arrival of a FD? Isn't the address in the Unincorporated Part of the Town? Which Department, Village or Town, responded? Which should have responded under any guidelines or rules that exist? Did anyone determine which would have been able to respond faster to this situation? Did anyone look at how response times might be different if the political boundaries did not exist? Thank G-d, no injuries, or worse. Can't we have improved protection and lower costs? Was this considered in that committee study a couple of years ago?
