Photographer's Note

Friday October 13 2006 is a day I will remember for some time! Around 10 PM I noticed some strange lights outside, and checking more closely I found the neighbouring old school building was on full fire!

The image shows the view from my kitchen window at 00:05 AM October 14.

The fire site is really close to my house and I easily admit the scenery was a bit scary! If the wind increased and in the wrong direction my place would be in real danger!

Two fire trucks lined up with the only duties to guard my neighbour’s and my house. The image shows one of them, positioned in the garden of my neighbour!

That night I took nearly 200 images of the fire, as there was no question of going to bed anyway until the situation was settled. The fire lasted between 3 and 4 hours, and all of the old school with 4 buildings were totally burned down…

I was a bit hesitant to post these images, maybe not quite in the line of TrekEarth?
