Onward Christian Firemen

It's not often that Hofflimits finds itself at the centre of a breaking news story, but today a government building caught fire at the end of Chancery Lane, where I work (story here). Hopes rose in the office, as flames became visible amid the plume of smoke, that we would be evacuated from our building - enabling us to enjoy the early Spring sunshine. Sadly this proved not necessary, but as I was leaving the office the cordoned-off street was deserted except for fire engines, plus a vehicle I didn't expect to see.

Parked up directly outside the front door was a Salvation Army Response Vehicle, which struck me as odd. I was trying to imagine what kind of conflagration would require brass band music to bring it under control. Maybe they are the real 4th emergency service, although on the one occasion I had to dial 999, I don't think I was asked whether I required Police, Ambulance, Fire Brigade or Redemption from eternal damnation.

Are you saying that the Sally Army got there before the AA, Hoffy? Are they phoned by the Fire Brigade, do you think? Or perhaps they have access to a divine hotline of some kind?
