Atlanta burning

My friend Brian Lemaster, whom some of my readers will know, left the world of technology a little while back to join his family’s lumber business in Atlanta, which was founded in 1946.

Last week, this happened:

Norcross lumber

Fortunately nobody was hurt. At least, not physically.

But that must be an experience he and his family won’t forget very soon…

My thoughts are with you, Brian!

Amazing picture – I remember the night that the same thing happened at Ridgeons here in Cambridge. With the bulk fuel store depot next door.

Hello, I am the art director for a television show called American Ride. We like the image of Burning Atlanta that you posted on your blog and we are interested in using it as part of the show. Do you own the image? Will you email me more information. Thank you!
