A volunteer with El Dorado’s fire department captured impressive snapshots of a pool building burning late Sunday night.
Fire Chief Steve Moody said the agency supplies Chad Wittenberg with a pager at which he can be contacted to shoot photographs at fire scenes.
Just such a situation happened around 10:30 p.m. Sunday. A 911 call came in about an outbuilding ablaze at a home in the 1600 block of Pennsylvania.
Along with firefighters, Wittenberg responded.
His photographs, posted Monday on www.eldoradofd.com, show bright orange flames rolling out of the building with patio furniture and firefighters in silhouette.
Moody said the fire was extinguished quickly but not before building was a complete loss. The cause is still under investigation. Damage is estimated at $2,000, he said.
