Fire

On Sunday 8 March 2015 Adele dropped me off near my house as I requested.  Because of the configuration of the streets in my area, I usually have people drop me off at the corner so that they do not have to drive an extra five blocks.  This also gives me an opportunity to talk with Ms. Betsy, my 83-year old neighbor, since I pass by her house and when the weather is good, she is often in her back yard.

As Ms. Betsy and I were talking, we heard fire trucks and then we saw two pass by in front of her house.  So we went to the front of the house to see what was happening.  The action was two or three blocks away, but my Sigma 18-200mm lens was able to handle it, as you can see.

I have no information on what really happened. This was around 15:30.  I was back in the house at 15:48 and left again at 17:16.  By this time all the emergency vehicles had left.
