Fire photos are attention getters

Thanks to so many of you who sent along photos from Saturday night's big fire in Brimfield. The smoke could be seen for 20+ miles.

While there were a great many amazing photos, including some great videos too, this picture from Doug and Laura Kincaid really stands out to me.
With evacuations coming so quickly .. and with most folks wanting to get the heck out of there ... Doug & Laura nailed this shot while driving away. Now that's creative! (and by the way, don't' try this at home)
I'm still looking to do some followup stories on the impact of the fire.. specifically the time it took to call for and receive mutual aid .. and the factors behind the weekend flareups.
Any thoughts?
Again .. thanks to all who sent pictures .. and the great video too .. Eric
