How very sad, our thoughts will be with them.
I used to have an issue regarding having an inferiority complex, I no longer have an issue with being inferior.

I went there three times for work associated with cross dating tree rings in the salt mines above the town which are a well preserved early bronze age site.

Yes what devastation - I do not really understand why these wooden buildings do not have an automatic water sprinkler system fitted. It is the same with old buildings over here?
Equinox 800 and a lot of luck!

The foundations of these wooden buildings are in a large lake - risk of flood may be greater than that of fire.
