I got to the scene of this fire fairly late due to heavy traffic and then congestion around Beacon Hill. The 2nd alarm was struck as I was arriving. The basement fire would extend to 4-alarms and would also heavily affect the apartments above. I was photographing the firefighting efforts in the front of the building when I noticed the woman below arriving across the street from the fire building to find her upper floor apartment filled with smoke. She naturally became very emotional and that’s when I spotted Boston fire Lt. Tom Murray springing into action to comfort her and explain to her what was going on. She was then escorted to an area where she could have some privacy (away from the press) and then she left. After hours of trying, I never got her name. I wish her the best. Here are three of my photos from today and here is my Herald photo gallery.

Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off on DeLuca’s Market Burns. Another Big Boston Fire and a Moment of Compassion.

This was the hottest fire that I have ever covered as a news photographer. I arrived at least 3 minutes before the fire department because I spotted the flames while driving near Bunker Hill Community College. I parked so as to not interfere with the apparatus and to not get myself blocked in. The first photo shows the first man that I encountered. He was a passerby who is loudly asking if anyone has called 911. The next photo is of neighbors knocking on the front doors of the affected condos. Please see my Herald photo gallery here.

The band, earlier today, used Twitter to announce that they would soon appear at the Prudential Center to give fans a chance to win tickets to tonight’s Lady Gaga and Semi Precious Weapons show at the Garden. The boys hopped off a bus at the Pru and did their thing. I just met and photographed this young lead singer , a real gentleman, and also met their very young and very nice road manager. Good luck to them. See my photo below.

Justin, just moments the Prudential Center.
