oh well in that case taking pictures would have been quite morally wrong. So you did the right thing.

ah, quite a sight to see, ive just seen one struck by lightning, never seen one actually blow up, ive just heard of instances where power companies were working on them and they exploding putting extremely hot oil onto the workers, ultimately they sustained very serious 3rd degree burns

just yesterday i responded to an MVA (motor vehicle accident) a car had slide off the highway (not sure how, it wasnt raining or anything) and flipped, the person was wearing a seatbelt but the car was on fire so we had to get our brush truck with foam to put it out, the danger with car fires is the possibility of explosions later on and you cant use water on oil fires, anyway just wanted to share my experience

i think its best you didnt put yourself into the situation, if you would have been around when the transformer blew that would not have been a good ending for you, sadly it was a bad ending for the 3...

glad your alright though
haha hey didn't know there was another first responder on here dang your only 15? are you like a explorer or junior firefighter? but anywho that's pretty cool your getting started young it gives you some good experience
