Some thoughts occured to me after re-reading the Kaldor port article by Peter Leitch. What if Kaldor at some point had a port and a great fire broke out on a extremley windy day, leaving the port and surronding area in smoldering ruins? London throughout history has been plagued by great fires. With the flames claiming many lives and causing a lot of collateral damage (Cathederals). Perhaps Kaldorians have the consenus opinion that it was an act of arson by followers of Agrik. Now in 720TR, the port is in the early stages of rebuilding on the ashes.
Then I got to thinking about medieval firefighters, and I don't recall ever any mention in Harnic material. Is there a firefighting guild or any organized effort?
