Not sure why you want to criticize someone doing a job that you seem to know very little about.
There was nothing wrong with this fire attack, or the actions of the firefighters.

Maybe I'm not being fair, but I really can't help but dislike Fisker Automotive. It annoys me that they have the nerve to release the least efficient electric vehicle on the market and still try to claim that their mediocre fuel economy, performance, and emissions figures are somehow mighty impressive. I mean, for example (this is from their site):
"Only" 6.3 seconds? For an $100k sports sedan (apparently) that's just awful, and that's with the generator running to provide power to the motor. The actual figure for all-electric mode is somewhere around 7.8 seconds IIRC.403 horsepower to the rear wheels. A staggering 959 ft-lbs of torque. Zero–60 mph in only 6.3 seconds.
Impressive compared to what? The Volt gets 94 MPGe, the Model S gets 89 MPGe. Even the rather horrible CODA Sedan recieved something like 74 MPGe. I still can't find an electric vehicle that's less efficient than the Karma.All while achieving an impressively high EPA rating of 54 MPGe
188g/mile is about 30kg/100km. Just for comparison, the Audi A8 has a CO2 emission of around 26km/100km.and an equally impressive low CO2 emission of 188g/mile. Is there something wrong here? Or is everything finally right?
