27 January 2016


Last night we woke up by the sounds  of sirens and horning of fire brigade trucks.
It was about 3.45 when I made these pictures. Some historic buildings on Canal street got on fire.
The flames were so high and we live on the 12th floor.
The smoke clouds were horrendous big and so black full of little pieces fire.
The crew of 100 fire men were  working nonstop 12 hours and some are still there keeping the watch.

A big thank you to the NOFD of New Orleans, for keeping us safe.
