As I wrap up the TV career I have been conducting raids of the archive room at Channel 9 in an effort to get some of the old material on the web before I leave. This is a fire shot by the late Sheldon Levy in January, 1994. Sheldon was our overnight photographer and a member of the Rockville Volunteer Fire Department. His son David, a lawyer in Chicago and former firefighter, is a STATter911.com reader.
This fire was in the 2100 block of 14th Street, NW. Vito Maggiolo reminds me that the units had come from other fires with everything already wet and then freezing. Vito says members of Rescue Squad 2 were doing a primary search when they were forced to bail. All I remember is that it was a cold, cold winter.
Something else I found while cleaning out my desk, a February, 1993 picture of Sheldon Levy.
