    wow, thats a huge fire. Great pics of a horrible event.
    Funny thing, although your are in Wisconsin, the names on the firemen coats look pretty Dutch to me (all of the three names you can read clearly anyways)

    Excellent captures. Well exposed and sharp. The last one really says it all for me.

    Thanks everyone. I just found out some info today. At the fire, I couldnt understand why so many firefighters were standing on the perimeter of the house and no hoses were working inside. I have seen many fires and once hoses are on, the main fire is knocked down in just a few minutes. This one went on for 2 hours. I found out today that the floor had collapsed making it impossible to fight the fire from the inside. Just thought I would share that incase any one was wondering what all the fire fighters were doing.
