There was a big fire in the apartment building across from ours on monday. I heard the ringing of the alarm out of my window and thought it was a car alarm. As I walked around to our porch to investigate, i mention to my roommate that 'the building next door was burning down.' As it turned out, I was correct!
Anyway, I took some photos of the whole ordeal. Complete with two movies. One was of the firetruck's ladder extending. The other was smoke pouring from the building. Everybody was safe, in the end. Although I am now feeling sick (probably unrelated). It could be smoke inhalation, but i think it is more along the lines of a cold.
