But also, Kenn, It could be turned into something positive too, That Organized Clubs such as CMASS take precautions against this very sort of occurence. That we follow a safety code that is taken seriously, and have equipment (extinguisher, flame proof blankets and appropriate deflectors and launch pads, on hand for this). Additionally as a NAR sanctioned club, we also have appropriate insurance too.

Thanks, Christine, for putting this in the proper light. I was copied on a link to the story at work and was having a bad day to begin with. I only saw this as "one more thing to deal with" that day (some ribbing from my coworkers).

Well tonight's long range forecast indicates a good chance for rain next week on Tuesday... with chance of spot showers thru thursday.  Let's hope that it holds up!

In the first news clip I saw, I'd add that the fire chief was very calm about the incident, and neither she nor the reporters used (I cannot think of a non-punning word here, sorry) incendiary language. Instead, the words I heard were that activities like model rocketry or building a campfire can pose a threat when conditions are so dry.

So, it didn't seem to me that rocketry was being painted in a bad light in general in the story I saw.

Still, it wasn't fun to see that.

Did we ever find out what sparked that fire in Amesbury?
