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.
