Fire on Eccles Street

Fire engines in the smoke

Lots of smoke in the neighbourhood tonight. Big fire on Eccles. I was coming home from dance class, (Tip: When you are instructed to move like a cat in dance class, do not try to move like your 3-legged cat. It hurts.), and walked into the smoke to take these pictures. I took a bunch of pictures and started think breathing dense smoke might not be healthy. Then somebody yelled at us gawkers, "you people, move out of the smoke!"

Drexel doesn't seem to like the way I smell now, but I got shots I like that remind me of Erin Robertson's paintings.

It's nice that you where able to get photos you "like." Someone lost a home you inconsiderate [expletive deleted]

Fires are always hurtful to someone.
But I can't see where David's pictures had anything to do with the starting of the fire or the intensity of the flames and smoke.

Anonymous, nowhere does David say that he is pleased someone lost a home... but calling someone names is extremely crass and insensitive.

"Fires are always hurtful to someone. But I can't see where David's pictures had anything to do with the starting of the fire or the intensity of the flames and smoke."

I never said David's pictures had anything to do with the starting of the fire but after reading his blog it sounds like he was more concerned about snapping some photos then even his own well being. All it takes is one line to show some sort of sensitivity towards the situation, instead this blog entry reads like many stupid blogs self centered [expletive deleted].

I think what I like in the pictures is that they convey the urgency and danger of the situation with the lights glaring in the smoke and the silhouettes of the firefighters suggesting their fragility.
