I went out a while back and did some shooting for some fresh portfolio work, and I am pretty happy with what I got. Let me know what you think.

Structure Fire Near Downtown Greensboro

A large fire engulfed a warehouse off West Lee Street Friday afternoon, destroying the structure and leaving downtown blanketed in a smoky haze.

Firefighters were called to the former Transportation Systems Inc. warehouse at 402 Tipton Place at 4:51 p.m. to find the structure fully engulfed in flames, said Assistant Fire Chief David Douglas.

Firefighters initially went inside the structure, but quickly evacuated and fought the fire with hoses extended on ladder trucks and on the ground before putting out much of the fire in less than two hours, Douglas said.

Flames completely gutted the inside of the building and caused walls on the structure to collapse.

Douglas said no one was inside the building and there were no reports of injuries. The cause of the fire remained undetermined late Friday night.

“Someone reported seeing two to three homeless people near the structure when the fire was reported,” Bellamy said.

“They were located on South Eugene Street a short time later. They were seen coming out of the building before smoke was seen coming out.”

The suspects were released and no charges were filed, police said. An investigation is ongoing.

Lee St. passes under S. Eugene St. in Greensboro, NC, Friday, October 31, 2008. This is the day Harold was retiring, and his final shift was to end at 6:00 pm but when the call came in around 5:00 pm, he went to work. “Goint out with a bang” is what a fire officer called it.

Mike Synan, the owner of European Auto Works, which sits next door to the warehouse, said the fire spread throughout the structure very quickly.

Synan said the former tenants, Transportation Systems, used the warehouse to ship furniture from High Point to the West Coast and leased the site for more than 20 years until leaving in January.

The company still had trucks on the site and Douglas said they still had some equipment left in the building.

Douglas said the building is owned by Norfolk Southern.

Stokesdale Fire Department

Posted in People with tags , , , on October 3, 2008 by bwarrenphoto

I went out and spent the day with Brian, John, Jonny, and Todd at Stokesdale’s fire department yesterday (10/2). The guys seemed a little unsure of me at first and turned at every click of the shutter, but as the day went on they grew accustom to me being around.

The first event of the day was some training with high pressure air bags, and testing to find the best way to lift tractor trailers off of smaller vehicles in the case of an accident. That all went really well and progress was made in finding the best ways to get the maximum lift so that a car could be pulled out and the passengers get the appropriate treatment.

The day as a whole was slow, but went very well with only one medical call coming in around 11:45. I got to see what a fire house is like on the “average day.” I had a lot of fun spending the time talking and listening to all the guys that were there yesterday.

Thanks to Stokesdale Fire Department for letting me hang out, and for everything you do for the surrounding community.
