A small village is disturbed in its early evening peace by a cry of "Fire!". Even though it eventually turns up that the fire was put out in time, one can't underestimate the danger of fire. The neighbours in the pub speak about all the great damage that fire can cause and the disorder that can cause it. Thus the fact that agricultural equipment must be placed away from the fuel. The unprofessional installation of electricity to the barns and cow-sheds is also dangerous. One should look after the children, who like to play with matches. But adults are also careless sometimes, like women when they work with domestic electric and gas appliances; men on the other hand throw away burning cigarette ends. It is important to enlist the young people in voluntary fire brigades and to develop education on all fronts, so as to prevent unnecessary loss of property and lives.
