fire 1764

Caught this when Carl picked me up for lunch yesterday… this town is mostly RVs, park models and other prefabricated homes and buildings.  So when you see a black column of smoke, it always makes your heart skip a beat.  When they burn, they burn fast and hot.  The gray is the steam from the fireman’s hose.

This wasn’t the only excitement for the day.  Just as I was heading back from lunch, the power went out and stayed out for the next 2 hours.  It came back on and then went out again a couple hours later.  Afternoons are the hottest time of day… and when temps are over 100 degrees, we really miss the air conditioner.  No, I didn’t get the afternoon off… we stay open even when the power is out.

  1. Heroes, the firefighters and you!

  2. Oh my what a dramatic photo . . . I hope no one was hurt in the fire.

    • No one was hurt… in fact I was surprised to learn that it was only the front end of a class C vehicle. I would have thought from the flames and the smoke that it would have been a much larger structure. The only damage outside of this vehicle was to the motorhome next to it… it was blackened and looked beyond repair, but it did not catch fire.
