Response times faster on inner-city fires

John Tedesco, Karisa King and Kelly Guckian of the San Antonio Express-News
analyzed six years of San Antonio Fire Department response-time data and found that firefighters reach inner-city structure fires quicker than in the outlying areas where firefighters cover more territory with fewer stations
