Fighting fires

One of the coolest things I got to watch GlassBox do is deal with emergencies. A fire breaks out, and rather than burning until it's put out by the statistical coverage provided by a fire station, a truck must actually leave the station, drive to the scene, and spray it down.

I also witnessed one of SimCity's special characters -- an arsonist who runs around setting fires for the hell of it.
