When to Lockhart, Texas, about an hours drive from me, just to take pictures. And, I spotted this fire house. I couldn't find much history on it but I did find a lot of information on the history of Lockhart. Here you go:
Caldwell County soil was found to be hospitable to cotton. After years of experimentation, Lockhart's A.D. Mebane developed a particularly hardy strain of cotton that continues to set a worldwide standard.
Oil and Texas are synonymous and Lockhart had its days as a boom town with the discovery and development of oil fields in the 1920's. Shallow field exploration continues in Caldwell County, with a major field surrounding Luling.
The coming of railroads and automobiles changed the face of Lockhart, as for all of America. The Sunset rail route reached Luling in 1874, and the Missouri, Kansas, Texas arrived in Lockhart in 1885. The first automobile in Lockhart was hand built by Lockhart blacksmith Emil Seeliger. The total cost of the contraption, including the $60 worth of tubeless tires, was $125. He took the car for its first drive in 1904, attaining the speed of 15 miles per hour.

This imposing structure is the Department of Education building in Bilbao, Spain.
I've seen things like this happen on television and in movies, but nothing, and I mean nothing can describe the feeling of being right there in the moment, feeling the intense heat and witnessing the struggle that firefighters go through while trying to contain a fire of this magnitude.
*No one was hurt. =)

I was going to add a description before posting this, but just realized I forgot to mark this as private...
But, I guess I don't have much to add anyway. I happened to be driving around southwest Detroit and noticed the smoke about a mile away from this house fire. I managed to get quite a few shots from the alley behind the house where a small crowd had gathered. Unfortunately, this happens way too often in Detroit.
