Fire Truck on Duty
Here's a Selma fire truck headed out to a small grass fire last week. The call came on Election Day as voters were marking their ballots at the fire station. But the trucks were already parked outside and ready to go. Have you ever followed a fire truck? It's not recommended since outsiders usually just get in the way, but I did that sometimes when I worked as a newspaper reporter. The worst fire I remember was when Dallas County High School burned. It was the oldest county high school in the state, but a reproduction of the main building replaced it. Another bad fire was that of The Crossing Restaurant by the Pettus Bridge. Now, that space is occupied by Songs of Selma Park.
