Where there's smoke, there's smoke

The fire station is only two blocks away, hence the big turn-out. On a typical call, the sirens are kept off until they turn onto State Street or 800 North. So when the sirens sound really close, it's time to go take a look. Smoke was coming from a four-plex down the street. Probably something left on the stove. As far as I could tell, they charged the hoses but never used them.
