Follow-Up Y Fire Coverage from Carol

Ahhh... it is good to have back-up coverage! Thanks to a late-arriving, (but QUICK-THINKING) Carol, we have a few more cell-phone pictures PLUS Comments and a view of the "Fire in the Y" from a different, (and one would expect WARMER), vantage point!

Hi, Mike. Great coverage of the YMCA's most exciting day ever! Carole and I were just getting there this morning when we heard the alarm going off and saw people coming out. I snapped a couple of quick pictures with my cell phone camera (there's one of Harry Slutter's retreating back as he heads half-naked towards his car).

We got out of there in a hurry so as not to get in the way of the fire engines, which hadn't arrived yet, but I wish I'd been able to haul a few of you swimmers with us -- you guys were probably still getting out of the pool when we were leaving. Glad everybody's safe -- hopefully I'll see you all tomorrow! -- Carol
