The old building still smokes and the firefighters have had to return on several occasions to knock down flames days later.
The smoke will settle but the questions surrounding the battles the firefighters encountered will not. The hydrants their hoses were attached to lost water pressure, causing them to have to reattach their lines to pumper trucks, losing precious time in their efforts.
Where was the water? What was it being used for?
These are questions that every homeowner in the city limits of Concord needs an answer to. Was there some fault of Concord’s elected official?
I personally was standing alongside Concord’s elected official when he wanted the firefighters to stop putting so much water on the roaring flames. Stating it would burn itself out. Why was there so much concern about the water being used?
Pike County has lost one of its historical buildings. It was loved and regularly visited by its graduates long after the horses took over what was once their classrooms.
Every homeowner needs to see that these questions are answered. The next fire could be your own.
