Sunday Stills: Fire or Smoke

This week my photos are from the archives.   The Sunday Stills Challenge was fire or smoke. 

Hunter teaching a new recruit This is the scene of an abandoned building that was on fire.  It was arson.  My nieces husband,  Hunter is showing a new recruit how to safely handle a fire hose.  I didn’t have time to grab my tripod, but the photos still turned out pretty good.

Ponsford Fire Little House with no roof

My husband is on the local Volunteer Fire Department.  I used to be a Volunteer Fireman/EMT too, I put in my time a long time ago..it is very hard work and dirty and very cold in the winter, I do not like house/building fires.  I don’t like forest or brush fires either, or vehicle fires..I just don’t like fires.  Camp fires maybe, but I make sure they are completely out with a couple of gallons of water. 

Windmil and smoke This is a plume of smoke that was about to move over and obscure the windmill at a control burn ( practice for firefighters) in our area. Have a good week everyone:)

  9. Great photos. I don't think the VFD gets nearly enough respect (until your own house is on fire).
