Fiery Photos

Gas canister burning on roofAt around 4:00 PM on Thursday, my daughter noticed a fire on the roof of a building. I called the fire department, and was told they were on their way. It was scary to watch burning intensely for so long, and even scarier when we heard a loud boom.

Eventually several trucks, police cars and ambulances turned up and they sealed off the street near our intersection. It turned out that a gas canister had caught on fire and exploded. The roof was severely damaged, but no one was hurt.

    Was it the phase of the moon or something? One of the stores across the street from me caught fire last night. I heard some commotion and looked out the window to see four firetrucks, an ambulance and two police cars. No one seemed very panicked though, so either it wasn’t too bad or else it was already over. I don’t think anyone was hurt though, thank goodness.

    Good for your daughter for noticing and bringing it to your attention! She probably saved some lives.
