Fire on I-5

Posted by Fritoy on July 10, 2008

Well more like next to it.
So here I was writing the post below when I hear a bang thinking it was some jerk setting off the last of his Fourth of July fireworks. I did not give it any more thought, then the smoke came rolling in through the open windows. (enjoying that early summer global warming)

I grabbed my shoes, flashlight and my camera I went off to see where it was coming from and forgot my phone.

I did regret not bringing my phone but by the time I had remembered it I had already heard  a siren or two amd seen several people near by.

It turns out to be a small brush fire but there is a apartment building and a home within a 100 feet or so.

At this point the fire was out and they were just doing mop up.

One thing I did find interesting is one of the apartment dwellers said he heard three blasts that sounded like a shotgun.
