It Came from Beneath the Sea. Fire trucks vs. flamethrowers

Has anyone noticed that in It Came from Beneath the Sea they bring the flamethrowers on a fire truck? Kind of an odd paradox.

Well, they do say 'Fight fire with fire'...

Mind you, it's army dudes carrying the flamethrowers - they're only using the fire trucks for the ride.

I know but flamethrowers are usually used to start fires, while fire trucks put out fires.  

Think of it as a job creation scheme.

Or, perhaps, a health & safety thing. No playing with the flamethrowers unless you take along a firetruck.

Anyhow, in the greater scheme of things, it's no more unusual an occurrence than a giant octopus trashing San Francisco. ;)

Or giant alligators in seweres.

Not relevant, but funny.  Saw on the Weather Channel where the alligators in coastal NC were having problems with ice freezing over the swamps.  They managed to poke a hole big enough to get nose through for breathing and then go in hibernation mode.  Showed pictures of one guy (Wildlife agent?) using a hammer to enlarge the breathing holes and petting the gator's nose.
