About This Image
Was in the vicinity of a house fire in Pleasanton, CA. Being a fire truck chaser since early childhood, I had to see what was going on when I heard the sirens. Naturally, I had my camera with me. I was only on scene about 10 minutes, but was able to catch a shot of a car on fire that had a magnesium explosion. (Apparently, a car has some components made out of magnesium. When they get hot enough, they explode bursting in a white light and unleashing a shower of white hot sparks). That is what you see in this cropped shot of a fire fighter running towards the burning house.
I envision this shot as a promotion for the local firefighter.
