Quest for Fire Extinguisher


On my way to the west side I spotted this plume of smoke. As I got closer, I noticed it was a truck on fire in front of the north campus of Glendale Community College. As you can see the gentleman operating the vehicle was rather unsuccessful in extinguishing it.

I’m sure you’re asking yourself why I didn’t stop to help him, but it was very clear that he had gotten out of the vehicle safely and I had my daughter and step-son riding with me, and I didn’t want to leave them unattended. When I came back towards my home, perhaps 15 minutes later, Police and Fire Departments had arrived and put out the fire. Which isn’t surprising considering it happened practically in front of the local firehouse.
