Now you'd think, with my newspaper's publisher taking the photo and me being one of his reporters, he'd get me in the picture -- kind of a free publicity thing. But nooooo ....
See the guy in the doorway? I'm crawling on the floor right in front of him, dragging the nozzle into the house to look for fire extension. I could have hung back for just a second, given a little wave, maybe pointed heroically. Nah. I suck at self promotion. :-)
Later I found out that where in the basement the fire was had been reported wrongly, and we'd crawled right over the fire area -- so I guess we had more important things to be concerned about!
