Andrew got a taste of the fun part of what his dad does Wednesday. The Michigan Propane Gas Association had scheduled a training session for firefighters in St. Louis, and after I finished my Union Township story and he finished work at Wendy's, we headed down with cameras.
I had the newspaper's video camera and Andrew shot stills. These are his photos.
Cameras and credentials got us excellent access. Andrew's been to fires with me before, and he knows how to stay out of the way.
The heat from these flames was impressive 100 feet away.
There's a reason for long lenses.
