The Fire on Beechwood Avenue

6-alarm fire on Beechwood: Pt III

On March 16, 2011, a six-alarm fire broke out on Beechwood avenue, spewing toxic smoke into the air and destroying both homes and businesses there. I was on the scene with my camera, and took a large number of photos (in sets: one, two, and three; you can also see the shots of the aftermath here)

Carleton University journalism student Heather Burgess created a great audio slideshow of the Beechwood Ave fire, and its impact on local organic shop Nature’s Buzz, with the help of some of my photos: I think she did a terrific job, and encourage you to check out her piece.
