My World - Fire across the fields

Yesterday, I heard multiple sirens off in the distance, looked out to see where they were going, and spotted flames in the distance. A barn was fully engulfed in flames as the fire trucks were arriving. Local paper reported that the barn and contents were a total loss and two people suffer minor injuries. The barn is over a half-mile from us and normally hidden by trees. These images were taken form inside, with rain anf fog outside. The third image has been cropped and the fourth shows additional equipment lining the road (fire is off the left side of fourth image).

Your cropped photo really shows the size of this fire. I hope no animals suffered, though I guess they have nowhere to sleep for the night.

Such a sad sight, Lew. It must have been dreadful for the owners of the barn.

Wow - that is a big fire - very frightening for all concerned, I am sure.

Hi - interesting to see some images of the darker side of our world.

Light and dark - you never can have one without the other.
