A working fire on 17th near Buchanan this morning:

Nice pics. Too bad we lost another structure.

I slept with my window open last night, and the amount of sirens was rediculous. I ended up having to close them. I live near Woodward and Warren near the Med Center, but still it sounded like there was a disaster going on over night. I woke up to nice westerly view of the fire shown here.

Nice sunny Sunday morning. We had an arsonist taking a
stroll. He hit Roosevelt and Buchanan
half hour earlier. Thanks for the photos.

Tony_box_42 are you with DFD? I could tell the fire fighters on this blaze had been very busy by their banter. If you are, or anyone else here is, I would be interested in hearing what the weekend stats were for fires. I do know that there is arsonist(s) working in the city as I have gotten some info from a DFD acquaintance. Rocket_city is a testament to this. Charlottepaul, I’m just grateful the graffiti doesn't read: 'FUCK BM'. The frontal view shows 'DOPE BALZ'. More views:

I think were in for a very hot summer this year, fire wise. I would like to hear what others think.

Great pics Bullet, looks like you were at the right place at the right time. I am surprised they let you get so close though.

Right place, right time? I'm not usually walking down 17th Street on Sunday morning, but today I was. I saw smoke rising from about four miles away and tore over there for some DQP's. Up close and personal, at your own risk. I got sprayed once and still smell of smoke. Dont get in the way, and don't ask stupid questions; 'Are you gonna save the basement?'

Some one needs to string these arsonists up by the nuts. They're the reason anyone who lives in the City has to pay high insurance rates.

These pictures don't even look like they took place in an urban environment.

I'd call this addition by subtraction.
Anyone know how Detroit's program to demolish abandoned structures is going?
