Does anyone know what exactly an 8 alarm fire means?

Is it:

8 calls into the Fire Deparment (FD) by different people?

8 alarms were pulled.

8 different fire stations responded to the call.

etc....

Thanks.

What if the city / county only has 4 stations? Does each station get called twice???? :confused1: :001_rolleyes:

I believe at that point it is mutual aid, that is fire departments from neighboring towns come in to assist with the fire. That's what happened the last time you fired up your backyard grill, correct mr. scottd?:D
