    Why was it necessary to take out the vehicle with a ladder on top and a big lift thing on the back? Surely a car fire is unlikely to involve anyone needed to be rescued from a great height? What if there had been a report of a poor little kitten stuck up a tree whilst the firefighters were dealing with this incident?
