Isn't there usually a lot of activity at the scene of an emergency?
Advertisements [?]
One more oddity about the Pentagon attack is the lack of emergency equipment and activity at the scene of the fire.

In almost every picture I've ever seen there are never more then two fire engines, at any one time, actively trying to put out the blaze. TWO? This was an enormous fire with possibly 100's of victims and they could only spare TWO lines to fight the fire?


Here's the building pre-collapse. Only two lines are apparent in this image

Here's more equipment but it's all parked over on the side in a staging area. Yet there are obviously active fires that are just being allowed to burn.

Here's another one with 3 Engines on the scene, an active fire raging and no lines trying to douse the flames?

Hundreds of victims but no one seems to be concerned enough to put out the fires quickly and to try to get rescuers in to try to save anyone? You would think that with a blaze like this the place would have been a madhouse. People and equipment going every which way. Rescuers rushing out carrying victims? Yet people are standing around and fires are raging? I don't get it.
