The fire

Our local indoor skating park got burned to the ground.

My son was an avid skater for a few years, and we grew very fond of our local indoor skatepark. One evening we got a call saying the park was on fire. We got in the car and drove off, hoping it wasn't too bad. It had been set on fire before, and it came out of that incident almost ok, but as we got closer and saw the black smoke rising towards the sky, we knew this was something else.

The park burned to the ground, but because of the great community, the skate club now has built an even better park. Probably the most painful photos I've taken so far.
