For a couple of years I’ve been running by here – one of the Surrey BC firehalls – twice a week early in the morning. Not once did the piece of equipment sitting out front seem to catch my eye or make me wonder its usage. So when I dropped by a couple of days ago to find something interesting to shoot, it popped right out into view. Not much trouble figuring out what it was used for in olden times.
Normally, this would just be another sunset at the lake. However, this one is a result of fire and smoke from the Gustafson forest fire just outside 100 Mile House. It shows fire as an element currently out of control in the interior of British Columbia.
