Ok. I'm in a quandry here. Let me first say, very neat map.
It'd be cool for the first House Fire and first perfect game in the current hunt. And I'm sure you spend a *lot* of time finding this.
But I have a couple of qualms about approving this for the hunt category in question. First, I'm not sure this is technically a "house". Looks more like a small office or retial building. And secondly, I'm not sure that the fire is still actually in progress. Looks to me like this is the aftermath, after the fire is out, but before the fire fighters leave. No smoke at all is one of the biggest things.
That all said, this is still a very, very neat find. I'm leaning weakly towards saying "what the heck" and approving it for the Hunt, but I wanted to express my reservations and let one or more other moderators chime in on it. If anyone else wants to approve it, go for it.

I lean towards OK. Generically it is a "building fire event" and I kinda think that's what we wanted. Based on the hoses and water run off it looks like they are still pumping some water. The fire is mostly over but if it were entirely out I doubt they'd still have that many units still on site.

I don't think all thefire engines would still be on the scene unless they were still fighting the fire. I vote for the perfect score! Great Job mic1us!
