I would like to understand how there can be a fire, in a roof, that they were having a hard time getting at, and they didn't evacuate the mall.  This is just so unsafe that I am disgusted. For all they knew that fire could have travelled throughout the roof and broke out all over the mall. All Hail the Mighty Dollar.  Ugh.
