    I have to wonder why you wouldn’t call in the fire marshall if you don’t know how the fire started!? But, we are dealing with the fire chief of Bladensburg. Great example of the community spirit and compassion from Mr Cockrell as well with his last comment, his concern is the time it is going to take cleaning the equipment?!  How about the family that has just lost everything?! Sad, but sorry to say very typical.
