Last night I was awakened suddenly by a noise that sounded like an explosion, this was 4ish. I got out of bed and roamed barefoot from window to window only seeing empty streets. In the morning while walking the dogs on Old Salmon Arm Rd I had to run home to get my camera to take photo's of the guys peeling off the old school roof. While taking the pictures I noticed what looked like smoke or fog from the river. A women walking her dog told me it was a fire and that a volunteer fire fighter had died. My heart goes out to the family of the young man. It's a dangerous job. The fire was on Brickyard Rd at Sperlich Log Construction. I drove to the site and took a few more photo's. It's all over the news but one says he was 25 and another says the firefighter was 29. He was newly married.
|You can see the smoke to the left of the photo. The white suits gleamed against the dark of the cliffs.|
|Smoke was still bellowing out by the time I arrived.|
|Fire Fighters were still hosing water on the building approximately 5 hours after they thought it was contained .|
|I drove over to the now empty North Valley Frame Works where Steve once worked on Bass Ave and got this shot. It was close to a number of business's.|
Thank you to all the Fire Fighters, take care.
