Yesterday was a very busy day for a writer and I. There were 13 fires reported in our coverage area. We were able to cover 5 fires in one afternoon, no easy feat mind you. We encountered multiple grass fires, structure fires and home fires. Though I have plenty of flames photos, these two were my favorite from the day’s work.
