Fire 3 Buildings Away!      
    Even Though I have not put up pictures of my new pad in Pacific Heights, here
are some of a fire that was just across the street in December 1998 (this is more interesting anyway).
Taken from the roof of my building. Just off Green/Steiner.
     
   
One does wonder, since the buildings
are so close together, how easily
a whole block could burn up.

The Firefighters had the fire out in
about 20 minutes after they got the first
hose out. They stayed around for hours
though to be sure it was fully out.

The plume reached a few hundred feet,
visible for a long way.

The flames rose 10' or more from the
roof, with smoke pouring out both the
front and rear of the building.
