Springdale Apartment Fire


I rarely get out and shoot photos anymore for the papers. I’ve been trying to find a new photographer and just keep up with the day-to-day scheduling and needs of the newspapers and my staff. Besides my staff give me a hard time about my shooting and they do such a better job anyway. I just bring the product down when I shoot.

But because we do have one photographer on vacation and are still down a staffer I had to get out and shoot what I thought would be a quick assignment. Of course Murphy’s Law applied, and while shooting the owners of James+James Furniture Company I got a call about an apartment fire on Crutcher Street in Springdale. I was a little too late to get any of the actual fire — the Springdale fire departments was quick — but I did get the fireman cleaning up the fire and the guy whose apartment caught fire getting arrested.
