    Default LA news van

    Does anyone know where I can get a picture of the news van that burned up because of the wild fires?

    On the way to the station. Really. It's 12 kilometers away and there's traffic.

    Default How about a 'before' or at least 'during' pic?

    Default Too bad...

    Looking at that picture, you would think someone
    would jump in the other side and move that van
    out of the way.

    As I understand it, the cameraman/tech had to be pulled from the van since he was still in it, trying (and failing) to start it..

    (Furthermore, in discussions on other boards regarding this pic, I've learned that most vans have (or are supposed to have) an interlock that prevents it from being started/moved with the mast up...)

    I heard that the news repporter lost his job over this incident.

    Default The Newsreporter...

    The newsreporter was Chuck Henry. You might
    have seen him on TV after the van burned. He
    was crying saying "These people lost their
    homes, its just a stupid van."

    NOW PLEASE READ THIS- Mr. Henry has ALWAYS
    been PRO-Firefighter and even did a special
    story on the LAFD. So if his name comes up
    again, get his back because he is on our
    side...Bou
