It was an interesting day at the office yesterday. The building across the street started on fire. The great city of SF decided to send out 7 firetrucks (including 2 with ladders) and 2 ambulances as well. Needless to say, it was a bit overkill.
As you can tell from the photo (or see the rest here) the fire could have been put out with a bucket of water. In any case, it made for an interesting 20 minutes or so and I got to see the fireman break a lot of glass, pull the hoses out, climb the giant ladders with chainsaws and more.
