Looks like the DFD is letting this one go and is protecting exposures. I don’t know the particulars but it sounded like another busy night in Motown. Undermanned & ill equipped, these guys are working their Butts off. Cuts are coming in June & it’s going to be a fiery summer. Dangerous situation for the Firefighters & civilians of Detroit. Detroit has 3 times the amount of fires as L.A. while being 1 fifth the size.
