Country one for a change.

Newman High School is on fire. Possibly the west wing of the school around the maths block. All staff and students accounted for.

Couldn't find an alarm code for it but it sounds serious enough to count for a third alarm ;)

88 arrival code for a structure fire in Heathridge.

Waiting for western power to arrive so it's safe to use water.

Edit: Now 4th alarm.

Third alarm HAZMAT incident in Bibra Lake. Chemical spill of some description - possibly an industrial solvent based on what I heard.
