With such windy conditions on 19 February, 2011, this was a dangerous situation. The fire traveled from behind Long Creek Cove Condos, east to Maple Street, then south toward the east end of Marina Shores boat docks.
This has happened before but this time the blaze seemed quite substantial.
Those Pines are approx. 20-25 feet tall.
Fortunately the wind blew the best possible direction to avoid our homes. The VBFD responded quickly and got the job done. Saw my old friend Van Rutherford in the middle of the action. Much thanks to Van and his fellow firemen.
