Arson Demonstration

At the Writers' Police Academy, we were treated to a real live fire!  The entire structure burned down in about 17 minutes.  It was funny to watch a bona fide fire marshall START a fire.  Not something you see every day!

As the fire grew stronger and stronger, the spectators shuffled backwards to get away from the intense heat.  We didn't even realize that we were doing that until it was nearly over and we all started moving closer to check out the damage.

For a closer look at the fire, check out Jennifer Oberth's You Tube time-lapsed video:

  1. It was funny when we realized we'd all moved quite a ways back without being aware we did so.
