The Baltimore City Fire Department responded to a fire in an apartment and pulled a man out of his apartment. I took a photo of the fire fighters trying to help him, but it just doesn’t feel right posting them, so I am refraining. He looked to have some smoke inhalation, I hope he is okay. The BCFD did a great job today, totally stopped it before it got out of control. Massive props go out to them.
the other day i managed to be walking by when a car caught fire on my block… though caught fire is sort of a misnomer, this thing went up like a match… it was spooky/scary how fast it went from smoking to an inferno. i always sort of thought movies exaggerated how fast a car can burn up but they don’t…. there was no explosion, though. one thing i never thought about a car fire is how the door panels and tires kept popping, making gunshot-like sounds. i guess it’s the air inside getting hotter and expanding… pretty crazy.
you can see more photos of it here. one was in the baltimore sun as well.
Friday morning, at around 3am we were leaving Ben and Kim’s… Brian called me to tell me there was a raging fire on North and Charles. Brad and I drove up and saw a bunch of trannies and what might have been their pimps running from huge clouds of smoke. We parked, walked over to North to get closer… it seemed like it was raining, but it was just sprinkles from the firehoses… the pressure in those things must be intense. Once we got on north we could see at least 10 firetrucks… a huge building next to a church was on fire, and many, many firefighters were working to contain the blaze… pretty crazy stuff.
