Early yesterday morning (Thursday, around 3:40 AM) a fire destroyed Orange County (California) Fire Authority station 61.  In the bay at the time were T61, the chief's vehicle, a pickup truck, and a boat -- all were destroyed.  No personnel in the station at the time were hurt.  E61 was out of the station on a call at the time of the fire.

Last November several of us (the Bobers, Mike Quinn, Mark Carr, Ron Arnow, Duane Kuhlow, one of Duane's friends, and me) photographed both the engine and the truck at this station.
