Towering inferno

Last night I was assigned to get a photo of a firemen training exercise where they practiced battling propane fires. A local propane dealer donated several hundred gallons of fuel, which sent a tower of flame over two stories into the air once lit. Chief Glasson said that near the blaze it was putting off 3,000-plus degrees as the firemen approach to turn off the valve as part of the exercise.
We don't have a lot of REAL large fires here (thankfully), but their practices can be pretty awesome.
