Hot Training Day
Firefighter during a "training" fire. This Firefighter pushes the collapsing wall back into the remains of the house assuring the fire doesn't spread.

I was about 60 feet away and the heat was very uncomfortable at that distance. I was told by the "Captain" at about the time I took this picture their infrared sensor read the temp. at 930 degrees F. I came away with a new sense of awe for Firefighters.
