An evening with the Stafford Fire Department
This locomotive fire this evening sounded pretty interesting, so I drove out to get some pictures. The place I found to park required me to hike through some brush. The idea of making the same trip back wasn't appealing, so I asked Stafford 2nd Asst. Chief Scott Kibler for a ride to my truck.
We weren't on the road 90 seconds when a call came in for a brush fire on Roanoke Road, so at that point, I was along for the ride, like it or not (I thought it was great to go out with Stafford on a call from beginning to end).
After the jump are pictures from both the train situation and the Roanoke brush fire.
Thanks to Chief Dave Rumsey for getting me back to my truck after the incidents ended.
