y2k plan a blazing success

There were red faces at the City of Montreal Fire Dept last week (2 weeks ago) after one of its statiosn burnt down as a result of efforts to stave off a y2k disaster. The blaze started after fire crews left a pan of chips on the stove and rushed off to asnwer a local call. The fire dept had cleverly installed a breaker swith designed to shut down its stations cookers when firefighters responded to a call, however it s was disabled whenthe city made its y2k checks. The Montreal firefighters union says more than half the city's fire stations face the same problem.
