    With the sunset and the rising moon, there will be some opportunities for unique pics.

    And, how were they allowed to stockpile so much fuel in one location?

    My power just came back up after going off around 6:30. Here’s a photo of me driving home…or towards the fire…after the park.

    We must think of the sparks before draconian policies flood the fun.

    It was an impressive scene as I drove downtown from the northeast. Cheers to the fire fighters, and glad no one was injured.

    This was so crazy to see from afar. The next day I drove by on the freeway and there was still a haze in the area.

    Incredibly smoky this morning at Schiller Park and outside my apartment, enough to give me a headache.

    The initial, ballpark figures for the first day of the fire was over 4.5 million gallons of water and 3 miles of hose used.

    After the 4th alarm was dispatched, there were 48 fire companies and nearly 200 firefighters from Columbus, Hamilton Township and Franklin Township. Before the shift change at 8 am, nearly every firefighter on duty in Columbus had been on Marion Rd.

    There were 598 other emergency runs throughout the day, including at least 2 other fires, several auto accidents and a few shootings.

    When AEP shut down the power and blacked out most of the South End, Miranova was also without electricity, forcing the residents to endure with air conditioning and listen the shrieks of children at the Scioto Mile.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my day off drinking a few Rhinegeist Hustles while my brother and the rest of my crew worked their tails off.
