Picture tells a story:
This image was taken on film in mid 1990’s and was one of the first photographs I ever took that literally ‘ignited’ my passion for photography.
It was an intentional fire of an abandoned house set by the Malabar Fire Department. It was used as a training exercise for teaching new cadets to fight fires and get firsthand experience.
The cadets who were inspired to take on such a dangerous role to protect and serve the public took to the challenge with bravery and courage.

International Firefighters’ Day (IFFD) is observed on May 4. It was established after a proposal by Australian firefighter, JJ Edmondson, was made on January 4, 1999, following the deaths of five firefighters fighting a bushfire in Australia on 2 December, 1998. – WIKI
