Default Fire and Rescue training

Here are a few shots from a Fire and Rescue dept training session. They get permission from the owner of an old or abandoned building to set it on fire then put it out over and over eventually burning it to the ground.

Thank you.


That was my first time trying to get some shots like this, but may not be the last.

They didn't actually burn the house down till the next day while I was at work, so I couldn't get any good shots of the house on fire.

It was raining lightly off and on the whole time, the E-30 got wetter than I ever let it get before, but seems to have suffered no ill affects, other than raindrops on the lens causing blurs on some shots. First time I ever wish I had the E-3.


A few more shots larger size.

1/50s f/2.8 -2.0EV ISO 800 100mm




1/40s f/2.2 -2.0EV ISO 800 100mm




1/50s f/2.2 -2.0EV ISO 800 35mm



1/13s f2.8 -2.3EV ISO 800 35mm

Hi Satire,

Great series of night images.

A friend of mine bought a piece of property with an old house that he was going to have torn down so he could build a new one. Turned out that the Fire station welcomed the idea of using the house as a training exercise and burned it down, cleaned up the debris and had the site ready for a new foundation to be erected. All done for nothing.

In exchange, they had the opportunity to train their men on various aspects of fire and rescue operations in a controlled environment. I got to see part of the exercise. Though never had the presence of mind to take photos.

Thanks for sharing.
