Russian Hill Non-Fire

Just witnessed 5 fire engines pull up to Vallejo between Mason & Powell to put out.. something. No flames, no smell of smoke.

After watching about 5 firemen (& women) setup ladders, I walked over to a policeman and asked him what was up. He told me there were some 2X4s on the roof that were on fire, and they doused them with water.

A couple of fire-people had chainsaws. It didn’t smell like smoke.

I’m glad they respond to these quickly, but it does seem like a bit of overkill. Can’t be too safe, I guess. A fire on a tar roof doesn’t seem to great.

Sorry no pics.
