The number of the beast — Fire trucks in Cambodia

It’s more than ironic that the emergency number for a fire truck is 666 as these “professionals” have been known to wait for their payment while the fire rages, sometimes at the cost of lives. That’s if they show up at all.

Recently a tourist was telling me of how impressed he was at the courage of the local people rushing to the aid of their neighbour whose house was burning. “They just ran in there and were pulling out tables, chairs-anything they could they move by themselves”.

In reality the good samaritans were looting the home.
