I would agree Jeffrey, but lets face it. People sue cause they went to Pet Smart and stepped in dog poo..Someone will whine about itNo Lawsuit unless a California Lawyer gets hired.....LOL.................
the fact that it appears they shuttled water proves they gave the best attempt anyway despite the other issues.Besides how far along was this fire when the engines tanks ran dry it might not have made a difference. seems to me things burn to the ground in the mountain a great deal, for several reasons,,,Volunteer departments access, response Time are all example of issues
I am sorry if I came across like I was saying they did not do a great job. I know my Uncle and Aunt that live in Grand Lake have been told if the truck can't get into and out of their driveway...they Dept is not going to fight the fire. I think if anything it was interesting to read the challenges they face up there.Might want to understand the Lake Dillon FPD and the Montazuma area before you comment, lucky they saved the foundation, it's a remote area with limited access even during the best of times.
Certainly are getting over criticized by the urban media for a job well done working an excellent tanker shuttle and such, proof of that is available on the Summit County feed archives.
