    This isnt incompetence. They are trained professionals and more importantly aren't completely blind. The structure what ever it is has completely burned down there's no saving it however the heat is intense enough to cause property damage to near by houses hence why they are spraying down the other houses.

    Could be stupidity. Could be asset protection. The fire had completely destroyed whatever it was burning already, there may have been a need to dampen nearby assets to prevent it from spreading via embers. Or could be stupidity.

    "You need to save my house!!"

    "Nah, I'd rather save houses than whatever is left there"

    A family member of mine briefly worked as a volunteer firefighter, and if anyone else has more knowledge please correct me, the main thing is firefighting services are a municipal (governmental) entity like the police, so their focus is usually on the wellbeing of citizens AS WELL AS property of the citizens. In an open place such as this, with buildings over 10 metres apart, they will try to extinguish the main fire, but if it's out of control like this, they would rather let it blaze under control at the very least, choosing to loose one building against 2, 3 or even 5. The real shit comes in cities' apartment complexes, where buildings are tightly packed together, and the blaze will more easily spread, which is why five or six fire trucks are at a scene at once.

    There is nothing one firetruck can do with a fire like this. Once it's spread like that you need to hose different areas to control it then extinguish.

    More than likely what he's doing is dampening the building around to prevent embers and debris from causing another ignition point.

  • sniptwister

    Damage limitation. The burning building is already a write-off, so he's wetting down the surrounding properties to stop the fire spreading. Crowd too stupid to realise.

    Not the worst, he's preventing the fire from spreading to nearby houses. The burning house is beyond possible to be saved. He'll move onto the burning house once he's made sure the other house'll stay safe.

    I see a bunch of stupid 3rd worlders. The ones on the ground, not the firetruck operator. Being a 3rd world shiathole, there is probably no fire hydrant, just the on-board water tank on the truck. So there is limited water, and the burning building is already a complete loss, and the truck doesn't even have enough water to fully put out that fire if it tried. The best thing to do with the limited water is dampen down surrounding structures to keep the fire from spreading, and allow the burning building to die out on its own. But no, mindless mob demonstrates precisely why their country maintains its shiathole status.

    One key thing about Brexxit is that people voted remain thinking that our politicians knew what they were doing or even had a plan at all, learning that it's the complete opposite is what is making people want the votes to be recast.

    Happened to my mom. She was on birth control but had been given penicillin and not warned that it can reduce effectiveness. She'd just got over a bout with mono so her period was irregular to begin. She went to the doctor because she suspected she was pregnant and tested negative. He diagnosed her with a thyroid condition (which she does have) which explained the minor weight gain she experienced. 7 months in, she went for an ultrasound to check for ovarian cysts and they found a whole ass baby in there. She got married a month later and was small enough that she didn't need a maternity wedding dress.

  • TimeLordArtie

    There are a surprising number of reasons why people might not know they're pregnant.

    Irregular periods
    Having periods or spotting while pregnant
    Not showing due to being i guess lucky ("wow you don't look pregnant!") or being heavy

    I've read about plenty of times where they didn't know they were pregnant until they were in labor. my cousin was pregnant, none of us -not even her- knew until she was having him. she didn't look pregnant, she had her periods, she didn't have symptoms of being pregnant

  • lemonlimeaardvark

    There used to be a show "I didn't know I was pregnant." Loads of women whose first sign of pregnancy was the onset of labor or a sudden urge to go to the bathroom and SURPRISE baby. It is not super common, but it's not entirely unheard of.

    Not all pregnant women get the standard symptoms. Not all women get a big stomach. Some women only gain 5-10 pounds. Some women still get their period, even. It's totally understandable that some pregnancies can fly under the radar.

Two weeks later, my son calls me to tell me DIL is pregnant. My four pound granddaughter was born a week after that.

    DIL said she had felt fine, and she was still getting a period. She had no idea she was pregnant.

    My stepdads sister is quite a large woman, and due to this and a few other medical reasons she has very random periods if she has them at all.

    She went to the doctor because she wasn't feeling well and found out she was 8 months pregnant. I still to this day have no idea how she couldn't have known (especially now that I've had a baby myself) but I suppose it does happen.

Crazy that people can be pregnant and not realize it but at the same time people pretty regularly ignore massive medical issues and then are surprised when the doctor tells them “you have a 60 lb tumor growing out of your face. If you would have come in sooner we might have been able to help”

She had gallbladder surgery a few months prior and the doc said " if she didn't change her diet she would gain weight". Fast forward a few months. Took her to ther ER for stomach pain. Many tests later they thought she was in her first trimester and having a miscarriage. NOPE. It was full term. At the hospital at 1pm on a Monday, my son was born at 1pm the following Tuesday. Little man just turned two and he is healthier than I'll ever be. It can happen
