I remember this one...It was a Wednesday night, a BINGO night, and Chad Smith, some new kid that didn't last long, and I were the only three at the firehouse. We took 15-1 as smoked 11.

The building is a large wood-frame garage (still standing) between Weaver Rd. and Park. Rd. I think that picture was taken fron Side C. I think thats me in the pitcure, all you can see is the black helmet. The fire started around the woodstove in the back office and met us in the bay.
