    I just wanted to comment on the fire of P&T trailers. I am surprised that it didn’t happen sooner. They have paint and chemicals being exposed throughout the shop on a regular basis. I have heard people say that work there ” When you build trailers for the City you can get by with cutting corners” This was the third time for the building to catch on fire. When you leave paint dust in 50 gallon drums it creates a situation for a fire.
