Trinidad Fire

Just a quick note to let you all know that I survived my first storm chase of the season. I'm still buried in unedited photos and video, but figured I'd at least share a few photos from the Lonestar Building fire in Trinidad, Colorado. We saw a plume of smoke being emitted from the city's downtown area and stopped to check it out. The photojournalists in Michael and Tony took over, so we took some photos and video of the scene and tried not to get in the way.

Smoke pours from the building as the fire is brought under control.

Michael documents the firefighters in action.

Hi Britt,
My recommendation is to sign up over on StormTrack ( There are a lot of people there that will be willing to answer specific questions. It's also a great place to network with other chasers. Also, you could download the chat client at ( and talk to chasers/spotters in there. I'll shoot you an IM when I see you online.
