Burning Money

Sunday afternoon lightning struck this oil tank and started a grass fire a few miles away. We were in the garden & didn't hear the page (the weather was fine here). 30 minutes later the Joy VFD called needing help. I grabbed my camera hoping to get some good pictures. After Behm helped put out the grass fire, we went to the tank fire. When we left it was out. About 30 minutes later, the tank on the right side in the picture caught fire & blew the top off of it.

Lots of money up in smoke, but the lives of firefighters are more precious than money.
