The fire trucks paid the neighboring apartment building a visit

On the side of the truck ,although difficult to read, is the word ‘fire/incendie and the syllabics for the word- fire. Interesting fact is that the Baffin region is the only part of Nunavut which uses syllabics. Currently there is a review to consider standardizing the language across the Territory, however there are difficulties presented as  it has been primarily an oral based language. On a side note all is ok and the small fire in the neighboring building was contained.
