Fire...

Today, I was moving around in SF downtown, hunting for a good place (non-Mexican and non-burger) to have lunch, when I suddenly heard a lot of sirens and saw a lot of fire and police vans zeroing upon a particular area.

Did not take much time to realise, that a part of a small building was on fire. It seemed big to me, and seeing the response of the fire dept, it was probably a pretty big one. Anyways, luckily enough, there were no casualties reported

Anyways, one more example from my side, to appreciate the efficiency of emergency systems in this country, though, from a lot of experiences, in India these services are doing good too now...

but somehow, still the image of the cops arriving 5 minutes after the incident is still etched in my mind! :)
