Sticky situation.

During the fire, the building collapsed causing a sugary mixture to creep along the fire scene. #BCFDS26 had to retreat to avoid getting stuck.

During yesterday’s fire at Domino Sugar, once the building collapsed, one of our engines took a beating from the heat. Here is the aftermath. Fortunately nobody was injured.

It should buff right out though.
