Mission Street Fire

Newer Older

04.06.2011 | Mission Street, San Francisco, California, USA | We were headed out tonight for dinner. Just down the steps and outside the door fire engines went tearing by. We turned our heads to see flames leaping off the next door building's roof. I grabbed the Nikon and spent the next 30 minutes watching the SFFD do what they do best. There was a big crowd of SF folks across the street watching. Pretty surprised by how naturally folks first instinct was to start documenting with their smart phones. What impressed me most was the full on bravery and professionalism of the Firefighters in action. We are well served SF'ers by our Fire Department. | Photo by Jeff Rueppel

    NightSnapper You're a bit of an idiot. Please stop using England in your arguments. We don't want this kind of naive influence on others' perception of us...

    Wow, from my hometown. The buildings are definitely SF, and this fire from the low perspective in full living color is scary and amazing. Well seen.
