  1. How sad for all the employee’s working there. I wonder if they will rebuild the place. Any word on that? On a lighter note, it must have smelled GREAT over there for a while, or at least until the meat was burned too badly to smell good. Plus, the smell after the fire was put out must have lingered for weeks. Can only imagine how that must have smelled, ugh! Thanks for sharing the pics. 🙂

  2. Mikoyan’s meat is hard to beat! Then Mikoyan’s meat factory caught on fire, so Mikoyan grabbed his meat and beat it!

  3. Notice that even during an emergency of this magnitude, the fire men watch the busty “pink girl” run past.

    (I would, too.)

  4. As a Firefighter in Australia, holes in hoes are nothing strange or out of place. We have holes in our feed lines and attack lines, but at the end of the day is it worth throwing out a hose for a hole.

    As long as you have enough water on the fire and can compensate for the water loss, its fine. A leak is insignificant at the pressures we are playing with.
