While I was shooting a football game at Cary-Grove High School I noticed some heavy smoke in the sky. Soon after I got a call from a reporter saying there was a five-alarm fire at Lowe Enterprises, which happened to be just down the road from me. Good thing it was 28-0 at the half.

No one was injured in the garbage fire.
