Fire!

Fires in cities are always big news. No exception was today’s fire at the DeSoto Hilton here in Savannah. I was witness to it from about 7 stories up and a few blocks over. The garbage shoot running up the entire height of the east side of the building (being used for renovations) was on fire. It was quite a spectacle seeing flames leaping off the hotel from that high up.

Here’s a snap a friend caught with her cellphone. She didn’t get the flames, just the smoke. The flames didn’t last long. Our firefighters are fast.
