The first sign that something was happening, and that it was happening NOW. I ran a good three kilometres to get to the scene, and it took me about 20 minutes. The firefighters got there 4 minutes before I did... I was surprised at how long it took. They really didn't like me... here's one shooting a dirty look my way. And my favourite of the bunch: Alas, my running was not enough - I got there too late to snap any photos of any flames.
