When a fire breaks out, dispatch your available units to fight the blaze.  Every 3 (three) minutes, new reinforcements MAY arrive depending on the urgency and size of the fire.  Use the Fire Chief to give a bonus to units and to evacuate structures of people.  

To move units, click the action dot to select the unit and then click a destination to move to.  When the unit is selected, the action dot will grow large and flash.  You can press the SPACEBAR to cancel the action.

Moving units through fire have a chance of destroying the unit and they become a casualty.

Unit actions are indicated by the color of the action dot:
- White = The unit is idle; taking a break.
- Green = The unit is moving.
- Blue = The unit is working. (i.e. Chopping trees, spraying water, evacuating, etc.)
