I was sitting at home and heard the scanner go off. The address was 5 minutes away so I grabbed my Camera on the off chance I could get near enough for some good photo journalistic style photo's for school. When I got to the scene I saw that it was actually a wood shed and outdoor wood furnace that was on fire. I immediately began snapping photo's. I saw this gentleman "Willson" heading into the smoke alone and just had to take the shot. I didn't realize at the time how powerful this photo would be.
On January 11, 2012 the call came into Oswego County Fire Dispatch of a Barn Fire in Osceola, NY. Immediately the Redfield Fire Department was called to the scene. On the way there they called for the Town of Florence, Town of Williamstown, Town of Orwell and the Town of Sandy Creek Fire Departments as the address is known for its big garage with various machinery inside.
