Fire in Western Addition!
Rand and I were walking around and through Buena Vista park after having lunch at the Bean Bag Cafe today (I had an artichoke, mushroom and chicken crepe with a sundried tomato sauce and Rand had blueberry pancakes). It's a beautiful day here in SF, but we noticed something odd when we looked north: smoke. As we watched and got closer the smoke thickened and billowed out of a Western Addition neighborhood. Within about two minutes or so, the sirens began to sound. I snapped a few shots and this little video, but we didn't get too close. As we walked back, we passed a woman on her cellphone, screaming to the person on the other end that her home was on fire. She continued to wail as we walked away. The city is rarely quiet.
