A fire broke out on the old train tracks, just across the street from my photo studio. Heavy smoke was everywhere, the fire department and police arrived, neighbourhood people gathered to see. I grabbed my camera and went to take photos, while other people were carrying bottled water to try and help the firemen put out the fire. There were moments of confusion, as they needed to make sure all electricity was out before using water to estinguish it. In the end they asked us all to leave due to the danger posed by the smoke that was cloaking the whole street.
