fire call

We were called out to a fire near the fire station this evening. We had to put out a back yard fire and two smoldering brush and log piles. As you look at the pictures you may wonder what my duties are besides photography. I interviewed the owner getting all the particulars we need for our report. Then while the "kids" spray water on the fire, I pull the hoses for them keeping them kink free. I also man the pumps and make sure they have everything they need. Incidentally the state of Oklahoma repealed the burn ban last week and so many people went berzerk lighting up their brush and trash piles in addition to the fact that the warm windy weather returned that the ban was reinstated this afternoon.
