Fire scene

Fire scene, originally uploaded by Itinerant.

Cable Car conductor:

"How far are you going?"
"End of the line. Why?"
"Well, we're not going anywhere right now."

This is why.

Interestingly, according to the onlookers, the fire alarms went off and but a minute later SFFD were on the scene, which is why the fire from a burning clothes dryer only caused minor fire.

They are VERY aggressive fighting fires in SF. With the density of buildings, a minor blaze can become a major disaster frighteningly quickly.
