A Californian Firefighter

Christine Bahr works as a firefighter in California. She has worked here for almost ten years. She has seen a lot of accidents in her life. She is recollecting a fire that happened in Oakland not far from San Francisco.

In the morning she had a lot of work to do in the office. Then she heard the reports of fire and set off for Oakland.

She was shocked. When they turned a corner, they saw a 30-foot jet of gas shoot out at them – a broken gas line. When they turned another corner, there was a spluttering transformer. Everywhere there were power lines and burning vegetation.

When they got to the place, they were asked to fight an attic fire in one of the homes. After they made entry into the house, they climbed up a narrow staircase into a small room. And she only had a second to look around before the room filled with smoke, and it was too hard to stand up. So, they went down, back to the stairs.

Then Christine saw the photographs hanging on the wall. She felt that the people were going to lose their home. She thought: If I take these photos, they will at least have something. So, she snatched them off the wall, grabbed a towel and put them down in a neighbour’s yard.

It was awful to see so much burning. It was like someone dropped a bomb on Oakland.
