I don’t ordinarily post photojournalistic types of photos (even though I actually enjoy taking them), but on my way home this afternoon I came across a fire burning at Page & Baker in the Haight! A large crowd had already gathered, and there were news helicopters overhead - I used it as an opportunity to take some photos.🔥 (Check out my IG Story for a video from the scene)
Watching the San Francisco Fire Department in action was very impressive - especially considering how densely populated the neighborhood is, and also that the apartment buildings are all attached to each other. 😳 Seeing these guys go into a building fully-engulfed in flames was remarkable!
Unfortunately, 15 people were displaced by the fire (per news reports), but luckily the SFFD was able to contain the it within 30 minutes! 👏🏽
