Calie, a 7 year old pit bull was called a hero by his owners Yves Casseus and Wendall Mars, after he would not stop barking as a 3 alarm fire began consuming their Chelsea home. The dog went missing but was found an hour into the fire as the fire continued to roar. The dog was found by Winthrop firefighters searching the 1st floor, and then carried out by Chelsea Duputy Chief Paul J. Eaves.
Chelsea police and fire department, along with Boston fire department, rescued a man from high above the Mystic River Saturday August 9. A man allegedly assaulted his wife with a knife in Malden. Malden police gave an alert, in the form of an all points bulletin, “be on the lookout” broadcast. A Chelsea police officer spotted his Lincoln Towne Car and gave chase. A brief pursuit ended on the upper deck of the Tobin Bridge when the man got out of his car and jumped over the railing. He was caught in the construction netting on the lower deck, approximately 50 feet below where he jumped from. He survived with a leg injury. The rescue took approximately 30 minutes. I was there, far away and under the bridge, with my 800mm lens and a 1.4x extender. Here are my photos.

I photographed smoke coming out of the cargo hold today as Massport firefighters, with a backup from the Boston Fire department, first investigated and then doused the morning fire. See my photos below of today’s event and also my photos from when the jet experienced happier times at Logan, first in Boeing colors, and then the inaugural flight from Japan. Also check bostonherald.com for any updates on the cause, etc.
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.
