Ottawa Firefighters in Action

Early this morning I woke up to the sound of my telephone ringing, a putrid smell of smoke, and a lot of flashing red and white lights emanating from outside my living room window.   Once I realized what had been going on I dashed to my window to see what I could see – my neighbour’s house had caught on fire!   My adrenalin began pumping immediately, so I threw on my jacket and a pair of jeans, ran out the door, and asked the first police officer I saw if my neighbours were OK. I kept thinking to myself: I hope they made it out ok, I hope they had a fire alarm with good batteries to wake them up.  Once I learned that everyone was believed OK, I ran for my camera and began taking a few pictures of some amazing Ottawa firefighters working hard to control the fire literally outside my front door. This picture was published on CBC News Ottawa, and for more media details on the lives this fire impacted, click here.   Yet another reminder to always be ready with fresh batteries (for smoke alarms and camera bodies!)
