House set on fire for photos

Sometimes work is just too fun for words … like the times that I ask to have a house set on fire for photos … and I get it! The image here is from several years ago and featured the Escambia County Fire Department in Florida. The assignment was a calendar shot for the fire truck company. I was positioned across the street in the hosebed of another engine … and these guys knew how to get a house going! The flames shooting out the windows were great as was the lack of wind which meant the smoke went straight up.
