Car Fire



I was on my way to my parent's house the other day when I saw this truck on fire at a gas station. I jumped out of my car and took some quick pictures just before the firemen put out the fire. It was quite a sight to see. I didn't get the story on how it happened, but I pictured a "Zoolander-esque gasoline fight" that ended with someone lighting a cigarette!

cheer, a true receiver, the always ready APN. Impressive photograph where one realizes of the work of the firemen

It's too bad you didn't get there in time to video the gasoline fight. You should sell the shots to the local newspaper. They have those in Canadia right?

wow! It's a must to always carry a sketch book and a digital camera. You just never know if Micheal Richards will be there. I blame him.

These are awesome pics, as per usual! It's one thing to be at the right place at the right time, but you're also great at capturing the moment artfully. So good!

Just because we have chiseled abs and stunning features, it doesn't mean that we too can't not die in a freak gasoline fight accident.

Dooooooooooooooooode!

Hot shot, eh?

So now you're moonlighting as a photojournalist?!

Good timing. Excellent capture. But I wouldn't hang around a gas station where there was a fire, if I were you!

Amazing shot! Great composition. Good thing you were able to keep your distance and snap those photos. You continue to post amazing photos. So many stories to tell in each shot. Keep it up.
