Not sure if srs... If you are, source? Also, if a fire is a 2nd, 3rd or 4th alarm... then the fire is going to do a lo of damage, period... those fires require more personnel. These also include buildings that are so burned that it is too unsafe for any offensive fire attack, so the building is gonna burn down, but those fires still need to have a lot of people on scene.
(If you were being sarcastic, disregard the above... I had a hard time hearing people's tone... through text... on the internet.)

Just sayin - Good source for more current statistics, vs a 12 year old article using 16 year old stats.
In 2010, in unintentional injury deaths, in all kids under 14, Drowning is more likely (about 3x) to be the cause than a firearm used on accident, in a homicide or suicide.
