Paul and George--without John and Ringo--find a fire

Paul and George notice a fire in a box factory. On a Sunday. They use a nearby fire alarm and contact the fire department.

Now, maybe it's just me, but if I were the fire chief I'd have some questions: "You like to play 'firemen', do you? How did you boys just happen to be at the box company on Sunday, just when it was on fire? Taking a walk, you say? And for what reason? Do your parents know you went to the box factory? Do you boys play with matches?" Maybe the chief should have been a little more suspicious.
