Structure Fire at 14th and Pico

One day at work a couple of years back we spotted a huge fire a couple miles away. On this day I had my camera gear with me and decided to take some pictures on my way home if there was anything to be seen. I later learned that this was a CD duplication company. Firefighters were dumping an insane amount of water on this building for several hours.

Justin Johnson - Those are great pictures, albeit an unfortunate circumstance. Did you give any to newspaper or TV?

Kurt - No I didn’t. Perhaps I should have tried to send some in somewhere. Perhaps one of the free Santa Monica papers would have been interested.
