Saw a photo posted to reddit by Brandon Lieng of the market on fire and trucked over there with my gear. Tough to get near the fire with many of the roads blocked off. Shot this from the roadside on King St N above Lobsinger Line. The uprights you see between the trees is apparently all that’s left of the main building. A bystander who lives beside the gas station at Wagner’s Corner told me the flames were visible above the trees a short while before I got there. My friend Tony Reinhart retweeted the fire page received at 01:48:36 so I was a couple of hours behind the fire crews.
Hope all are safe and my heart goes out to Brady’s Meat & Deli, Stonecrock Bakery, and all the other vendors at the market. Click through for a few more pics…
Looped around off Lobsinger to Apple Grove Rd to get up in the TSC parking lot and shoot this from the corner of Weber and Farmers Market Rd. From this vantage point it looks levelled.
Lot of crews on scene.
From this shot it looks like the fire was contained to the main building and didn’t hit the flea market or livestock building.
