A powerful thunderstorm with high winds and lightning, make it a bad day for firefighters. A lightning strike to the cupola of the Aiken County SC, USA courthouse brought out several fire departments to battle the blaze. By the time the fire was under control the streets were filled with apparatus and connected hose lines.

    It sure is a busy scene Larry…..Love the old rigs….

  • Doesn’t it make you long for the home lads what with all that hose on the ground. On this Public Safety department all of the orange helmets are also cops. They kept the fire going until some vollies arrived to extinguish it. 8<)))
