Is that a "Brown" truck (e.g. UPS) that's burning. Great vantage point. This shot reminds me of a truck fire I photographed about ten years ago.

WOW, well done. I hope there were no injuries. That looks like a fairly new model Kenworth (maybe).....expensive fire to be sure.

A new day dragon slayer, stabbing the beast right in the eye.

Excellent catch.

Outstanding. By the way thats a blue truck not a brown truck. I wonder what it was carrying. Obviously something flammable.
