There is no such thing as firefighters in this game so... ????
I made my sim's girlfriend cook a meal and a wild fire appeared. the alarm went on and it kept ringing and it rang and it rang and it rang... until the entire kitchen was burned to a crisp and the girlfriend also burned to death because she wouldn't extinguish herself after I told her to several times.
So pretty much a waste of simoleons and time playing for 2 sim days, since I obviously didn't save the game.
Note to self: save more often.
