Spent time with this family last week as they tried to salvage some belongings from the ashes of their home. Thankfully everyone got out of the house, but just about everything was destroyed by the fire.
A couple weeks ago Dianna Wray and I covered a murder trial in Goliad, Texas. Delbert Andrew Mills was being tried for the murder of his wife, Patricia Leigh Mills, in 2003, when she died in a house fire. At the end of the trial he was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. These are a couple shots of the emotional moments of her family following the verdict.
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.
