On my way home from work yesterday I noticed a black plume of smoke coming from an area very near my home. I was still quite a distance away when I spotted it, so it was definately a concern. Upon entering the neighborhood I saw that one of my neighbor’s homes had the garage area of their house engulfed in flames. Thankfully, nobody was hurt in the two-alarm fire.

Featured here are two captures I made of some of the many fire personnel that were on the scene. They were quick to extinguish the flame and appeared to operate very efficiently in there varied duties. After watching them operate for a period of time, I’m convinced that they are the reason that the fire was mostly contained to the garage area of the home.
