    I'm reminded I used to live in an area like that.

    Not real industry to speak of, since every time someone started something, there would be a "mysterious fire".. the moment it got into any kind of financial difficulties..

    Mind you, where I am, the same thing seems to be happening too..

    Though, with many buildings made of wood, they are not what you call 'fire proof' to start with..

    Though in a bunch of electrical stuff fitted by folk who don't know how to do it very well, and its a recipe for disaster !

    I'm reminded of one place, that someone thought it was a good idea to put the servers in the same room as the towels..

    Or was it the other way around..

    Anyhow, one towel too many later, and the place caught fire.
