I shot this photo after seeing the smoke and following it to find out what I was observing. I had a minivan full of kids at the time. No, we were not in danger. Not even close. I found the firefighter in the picture a few days later and gave him a copy. He said he was sitting there, watching for flashes of fire to warn the others on scene. I was not working for a newspaper at the time. It was my first attempt at photojournalism. I love this picture.
