Not just north of Scotland. Many places have retained crews with just
one appliance. My earlier remarks were about London.

There was an especially grievous incident about a decade ago in a
village in Oxfordshire that I used to live in, where despite the
retained fire station being only a few hundred yards away, they had to
let a shop in the High Street burn to the ground because they were one
short of crew members, and H&S rules said they couldn't engage. Instead
everyone had to wait for an appliance from a village ten miles away to
get there.
