NOFD Operating Firehouses:
So although it seems like there have been an incredible amount of fires in the first five months of 2006, the numbers surprisingly indicate fewer fires than last year . . . Are the fires just getting more local press than before because of the "what could possibly happen next" post-KTMB atmosphere within New Orleans????
*-"First Half" in above matrix refers to 1 January 2005/2006 thru 1 June 2005/2006.
