I love checking out photos of big fires, especially refineries, oil wells, etc...
I don't know the story behind these photos, but they're pretty impressive!
Anyone else got some other photos of big industrial type fires to share?

I would hate to be the one in charge of cleaning up all that hose in the picture posted by sconfireMike

Let me tell you something brother! Ahhh the summer of 86', how it brings back memories! I was not a paid firefighter then... only rode with my dad to calls (Battalion Chief and just into High School). I still did what I could, humping hose here, carry some water there. That was a hot fire! You had to be there to truly be able to experience the power of all of the gasoline burning.
There was so much equipment used! There was 15,000' of 5" hose on the ground. the stuff you see there was being pumped up a dock by a boat!
I still remember a mound of equipment and smaller hose the same size as the pumper I am now a Captain on! Four days and 2.5 million gallons of gasoline later... it was a very long four days...

If you're after a pretty good magazine dedicated to Industrial Fire Fighting, then check out the link below...
Industrial Fire World
Another greta site with lots of photos of huge industrial fires and also suppliers of equipment is Williams Fire and Hazard Control
Looked like pretty good training WTFD10. Do you guys train there often? It'd be great getting access to a place like that for the realism of a large fire...Luke

These ones are from a Photo Story off this website- I love the colours that have been captured by the photographer, but this is as close as I'd want to get to it- it looks nasty!Luke
