La Lengua, El Fuego

April 7, 2011

Well, that was a little too close for my liking. I was sitting on my couch, just about to ask Twitter what was up with all the sirens when HOLY CRAP:

I was stunned at how quickly it spread. The wind was gusting pretty seriously. (iPhone through binoculars, so a little shaky)

Quick and dirty animated GIF:

And here’s a shot from a real camera showing the SFFD using chainsaws to cut holes in the roof.

Can’t quite imagine standing on the roof of a burning building. One firefighter was injured falling off a ladder — hope they are OK.

Bats took this shot (thanks, Bernalwood).

It looks like it started in the building with the dentist office down below and spread to the Lotus Garden building.

Blue Plate, El Zocalo and The Royal Cuckoo seem to be OK.

Much more over at Mission Mission and Bernalwood.

Attention La Lenguans! The city of San Francisco has a phoenix on its shield! We shall rebuild the Liminal Zone!

    It’s always a damn shame when a Victorian burns.

    So, so sad. I hate being reminded that fire is real.
