If it was deck-stepped....well, the deck folded in and it all came down.

Where were those extinguishers....

The thought of an onboard fire terrifies me. I worked in a Burn ICU for 4 years and saw the consequences. Those memories have a way of making a lasting impression. Sincerely hope they are all ok.
