School Building Ablaze! Who brought the marshmallows?
Armed with my Toshiba Digital Camera I scooted out the door and jumped on the ole' steel horse. I got to the end of the street and knew right away what the emergency was. The school across the street had an addition against the gymnasium and it was burning.
I cranked the throttle on the bike and got a better look. I took some photos. You can see them on my flickr account .
I stuck around for 20 minutes or so. That's when the roof caved in. I think the fire's out by now as I heard some firetrucks drive by again. Although I was at least 100 yards away, I can smell the smoke on my clothing.
