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.
