House Fire

The call came in about 2:30am for a house fire.  Troutman Police on the scene confirmed a working house fire.  Troutman units were on scene within a couple of minutes to start extinguishing the fire.  The weather was cold with temperatures in the 30's  and the street was torn up to add to the problems of fighting the fire.  Units from Troutman, Shepherds and Wayside Fire Departments responded as well as the Iredell County Air Van and Troutman Police Dept.

This was the first shots from my new camera and are posted with no changes.  It looks like it might be a winner.
