Mitchell School fire in Racine, Wisconsin: Video, photos
Amy said she first heard the fire engines around 1:30. The temperature was 7 degrees and falling when we went outside for a better look. A policeman shooed me back from the corner, and some of our neighbors joined us to marvel at the blaze. In just a few minutes, my gloved fingers were aching from the cold. I can only imagine what it was like for the firefighters, standing on ladders in the wind to spray water on the fire for hours.
