You know how some people complain that they can’t get any work done because all they do on the job every day is just “put out fires” ??
Well, that old adage became literal for me Tuesday morning when fire broke out in the utility area of the large conference center I manage.
Yuk! Black oily smoke from melting PVC pipe permeated an extensive portion of the meeting rooms. In the end, it wasn’t a big fire and the flames were doused in a few minutes.
No permanent damage, but it’s surprising how messy, how extensive and how expensive a simple smoke situation can be!
Nobody was hurt, that’s the important thing.
