About this creation
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.



Barely visible in the picture at the far left, is the tip of the ladder from Friendships old Mack aerial. Shamrock's Ladder and Friendship's Tower are on scene and preparing to pour additional water on the blaze. 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



Firemen from Shamrock, Citizen's and Veteran's work to extinguish a blaze on the West side of the City.



Friendship Hook and Ladder's, LaFrance working on an apartment fire on the Ticlaw's South side. Ideal Engine Company, Excelsior Engine Company, Veteran's Hose, Hook and Ladder Company and American Engine Company were also called to combat the blaze




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?

Great use of Photoshop. Innovative and really enhances the pictures.

Interesting idea. Never saw this before. I've seen other trucks photoshopped into backgrounds but never at a fire.

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

Yeah I know.....Could get him out of the picture. I guess I could have photoshoped another fire truck in there to hide him.....lol
Quoting James Keatley The minifig in photo 4 is very realistic, looks almost human hehe, great work though, some fantastic editing.
