Disaster Strikes

Sign in to follow this  



Palisades has been growing steadily and quickly due to the cheap and plentiful land.


In fact, almost the entire Northwest land-mass of Palisades has been taken over by farmers and their families. (I Tried to edit out the background to make it seem a little more realistic, sorry for the amateur paint job)


Four new blocks of housing have been created to house the masses of travellers arriving. However, as you can see, Palisades is just comprised of farmland and small houses, with few basic amenities since Verdebaum thinks nothing bad could ever happen in one of his cities...


One beautiful warm sunny day in Palisades had persuaded a group of new neighbors to throw a barbaque. As one clumsy sim was preparing his burgers, he had forgotton to turn off his grill. This caused a small fire in his backyard, which caught onto a clothesline and then quickly spread to the neighboring houses.


No fire station had been built in Palisades, so it was up to nature to decide when the fire would stop. Thankfully, the Palisidian sims had gahered their gardening hoses to douse the flames. Final damage from the fire is shown below


Shocked from the news, Verdebaum quickly constructed a fire station just north of where the fire took place.


Many Sims are now afraid for their safety, and Verdebaum knows that the Palisidians will want more protection.

To add to the reality of this CJ, here is a Dramatic Re-enactment of the proabable cause of the fire:
