Could fire happen here?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

MAUI fire… originated - started because overhead electrical wires crossed - caused a flash, unfortunately in a residential area. We have witnessed the horrific results. Could it happen in Nassau?

For sure most of Over the Hill BPL transmission lines are up in trees and when it blows we see the sparks...precisely what happened in Maui.

What if such a catastrophe were to happen? Can we fight a major fire of this nature? How well trained and equipped are we to fight high rise fires?

Years ago there was, I believe, the Market Street fire … in recent years twice the Straw market fire … Emerald Beach Hotel fire …. any witnesses of the more recent incidents can vouch we ain’t too well trained to fight large fires.
