Lots to do for a photographer, blogger, and historian on the morning after the three-bagger on Armadale Lane. First order of business was returning to the scene at daybreak. Snapped a number of photos on all sides of the seven destroyed or damaged buildings. Might post those this evening, and prior to processing the 957 shots from the fire. Sure, about 50 were processed and posted last night. They were quickly chosen; the most obvious "good shots" to feature. Culling the whole batch is a longer process. Lots of bad ones to be excised. Likely as few as 100 or 150 keepers. There's also the incident narrative to craft and post. What happened, who was there, which hydrants were used, and other obsessive particulars. From there, a version can be crafted for submission to FireNews, and maybe Firehouse. Heck, might even submit a photo to a magazine! Plus other postings that come to mind. Recalling Pine Knoll Townes. Observations on flammable ground cover. Etcetera. Time to get cracking! Click once or twice to enlarge:

Anyone know why the houses on the left were deemed unsafe to enter? Wondering what damage was done to them as they physically look to be in good shape from the outside.
