    Trivia (3)

    • As the engine is leaving the station for the final call you can clearly see 2 fireman holding on to the back of the truck.  A very rare occurrence on this series

    • When the dispatcher sends Station 51 to the studio for the girl trapped on the wire, he says "Time Out 11:20". The clock on the display in front of him clearly shows "11:44".

    • Capt's reply "Texas City," when told about the ammonium nitrate is a reference to the Texas City diaster of 1947. The explosion was heard as far as 150 miles away. The offical death toll was 581.
