At just a few minutes after 8 p.m., fire alarms rang out in the City of Ticlaw. The old Riverview Apartment Building, a four story former hotel, on McDowell street was a blaze. Madison County Dispatch toned out Citizen's Hose Company, Friendship Hook and Ladder Company and Excelsior Engine Company to respond to the scene. Within a few moments, Citizen's Hose Company was on scene and requested additional units. Shamrock Ladder Company, Laurel Hose and Chemical Company and additional support from Excelsior Engine Company were called. Laurel Hose and Chemical Company and American Engine Company, as well as Veterans Hose, Hook and Ladder's aerial, were placed on standby in their stations. Soon the Chief from Friendship requested their second aerial to be toned out.

In all, 9 fire apparatus from 5 stations worked for 5 hours to bring the blaze under control. Crews worked until after 4 a.m. before returning to their stations

Wow....after experimenting with the pictures from the other night, I thought why not play around with some fire scenes. These were just some quick setups to see how they would turn out. It is my hopes to get some of my actual LEGO buildings from storage and create an all LEGO scene. In the meantime, what's everyone's opinion?
Yes, they do take a little time. I have a blank background that I photograph the apparatus in front of. Then manually photoshop them out. I take lots of pictures at different angles, hoping to match up things fairly close. Gotta love digital cameras....

These are stunning, they fit in perfectly. Must have taken you quite a while to get these made.
