Pitt Meadows Fire

While heading out for my walk last Sunday morning, I saw a huge column of smoke the minute I left my building.  I snapped these photos from out of the passenger side window, as even when pulled well over on the road, I didn’t want to be out of my vehicle and get in the way of emergency services heading to the blaze.  It only seemed right to wait to go through the photos until I had heard the news report about what happened.  Thankfully, loss of property only.

 

Emergency vehicle lights and cedar trees ablaze.

For this shot I was about 3 kilometres away; the black smoke dominates the morning skyline.

Looking in the direction away from the smoke, it was a truly gorgeous morning.

By the end of our walk, the winds had changed, moving the smoke over the river.
