    Counterpoint:

    What sort of idiotic construction mechanism is it to take a $34 million item with ZERO fire protection, surround it with flammable wood (that, if ignited, would destroy the bridge), then have a bunch of people with blowtorches work on that structure?

    Doesn't seem to bright. Probably union foreman made that call. Give him a raise!

    thank god for the amazing training these union construction workers are put through or the fire could have been worse.:giggle::doh::jj:

    DNR spokesman Flint said a Conway employee drove a water truck to the site of the fire, but didn’t know how to operate its water sprayers. One employee was unable to find a fire extinguisher and grabbed a personal one from his truck, Flint said. A supervisor arrived on the scene a few minutes later and got the sprayers going. But the truck ran out of water before the fire was extinguished, the report said.
    Crews should have been trained to use the water truck and the company should have had fire extinguishers that were “up to the job,” Flint said.
    “There was no evidence that precautions were taken by either the contractor or subcontractor prior to the cutting and welding activity (that could have prevented hot materials from igniting material below the bridge),” the report said. According to the report, Conway Superintendent Greg Ross said he didn’t think any of the construction crew was trained to use the water truck to suppress fire.
