Fired Up!

Imagine a man with a camera in the right place at the right time.  That was me yesterday.  I'd just left work and was almost to the stoplight when I saw some smoke and a couple people running around.  I noticed that it was right next to the fire station.  There was no movement at the station.  I stopped at the light and thought it over.  I could take a few minutes for a picture.  So, I pulled over.  I called 911 to make sure it was reported and dug out my camera.  Here are a few of the pictures I took.

I sent them to the local newspaper.  I think the irony of the station sign and the fire without fire fighters really made the picture.  It turns out it is a volunteer station.  That explains why it was locked.

The fire department finally got there and I needed to leave.  I picked up some milk and headed for home.  So, that's my news for the week.  I thought it was interesting.

Right place, right time and a man with a camera... what could be better!? Great shots of it and I agree the juxtaposition of the station sign and the fire is priceless!

Great shots! Goes to show that you should never leave that camera at home.
