Burning Barn

Uploaded by: HarveyCreek

Saturday April 28, 2012

Dundee, OR (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Had some excitement in the neighborhood last Saturday. My neighbor to the south barn caught fire, I heard a muffled explosion, and saw smoke. I had my camera out as I was taking pictures of the grosbeaks. This picture was taken no more than 5 minutes after hearing the explosion. I was nervous about the fire getting into the trees, but we have had a rather wet spring. Fortunately no one was hurt, though the property inside appears to be a complete loss.

You can tell how hot the walls are, the paint is blistering making it look like some kind of weird graffiti! Glad the trees didn't catch and that no one was injured.

That is really a shame. Hopefully no one was injured.

Mysterious, unexplained explosions and fires follow my mother-in-law, wherever she wanders.

Omigosh! This caught my eye right away! Glad no one was hurt and the fire departments were able to keep the flames from spreading. I live in a rural area too, and have great respect and appreciation for the volunteer fire departments and their tanker trucks, as we have no city water or hydrants either.

Congrats on this picture's appearing in the VIP gallery!
