Great picture!

Thanks.
Less than 2 seconds after this image, everything between us burst into flames. We both had to scramble in opposite directions.
:-(

In my brief career I have yet to have covered a fire. My friends and I always joke that no Photojournalism portfolio is complete until you have some smoke and falmes.

Looks like it was exciting!

Actually, it was a boring little brush fire except for the two seconds immediately after this image.
