Just Waiting

I got home today to find 2 fire trucks under my building. Turns out there was some kind of power-line that was buried under the sand and it must have been overpowered or something because the rubber around the cable was melting in one section and smoke was coming from it. The problem was there was a car parked just over it so people were worried the electricity might cause the car to explode (don't ask). Anyway the road was blocked and I couldn't pass so I just parked the car and went down to take pictures. The fire fighters were just waiting for the guys from the ministry of electricity to come so they could see the situation, when they came like 20 minutes later they were able to turn off the power going to the cables. Then everyone just left. I only managed to take two pictures because I wasn't sure what their reaction would be if they saw me. Luckily I liked one of the shots and chose it as my picture of he day.
