Why Won't My Fire Trucks Respond To Fires??

Am I missing something here? I have 1 available fire truck and 1 available fire that needs to be fought, what's the deal? 3rd fire I've had and not once have they responded. What am I doing wrong? Or is this a bug?

Have you checked the green "halo" around your fire station?

It seems, so far to me, that stations only respond to fires within their reach, as I've had a single fire with all trucks available on the other side of town and none of them get deployed.

Same thing with police stations.

I've kind of divided my city into a 4 quartered square with 3 stations of each type in each, and it fixed the problem for me, but that may just be an overabundance of resource versus the whole "area specific" thing.

The map size is so small though, that I can't have a well balanced city, because all of the resources it takes to keep each area in harmony burn squares that can be used for the big 3.

Tough choices in this title indeed.
