Hockeyday: If you worked in this Dept, or had a clue of where the fire was located, what was burning, and understood the equipment that was effected by the fire I am sure you would have a different tune. Although the fire was contained fairly quickly, and confined to a small area. However it had potential to cause significant damage to facility, equipment and employee safety. So before you start making comments such as yours you should actually get some accurate information, and educate yourself before you decide what battling a blaze actually means.

actually any fire that took less than a half hour to put out by city firefighters is considered a blaze in indusrial standards at resolute...it obviously couldn't be contained by resolute employees

A small fire put out in less than an hour is not "firefighters battle blaze at pulp mill."

Headlines are to grab your attention. Like advertising, until you read the fine print.
