Yes and yes, an off duty Deerfield fireman driving by saw the smoke and called it in.  It roasted some of their equipment and all the local departments came to put it out.  I heard the building is toast or waterlogged embers...lol

Pretty sad when your fire hall goes up in smoke.

I think they said it was a vehicle fire -  the Ambulance - that caused it...   

did someone forget to shut off the battery switch?     We killed the power to all our vehicles while parked indoors

With the newer vehicles, I believe that isn't an option.  If you kill the power to the ECM, it's all over unless it's reflashed.  It was the ambulance far as I can ascertain.  Most likely an electrical short and resulting fire.

Saw pictures of their equipment, it all looks toasted to a degree.  I bet the insurance carrier is on the hook for millions and I bet their premium will go up after the fact.

That may have been true on the very early computer controlled cars.....

But now....  not a problem.
