Any status of the burned FF?

Also, was the photographer part of the crew or a bystander?  Good shots of how a small fire gets big fast.

Photographer was resident's grandson. It was on his facebook soon after the fire, and was a friend of my wife.

Not trying to start a fight but was there water problems or did the fire take off that fast.

Which is what brought up my question.  I was hoping it wasn't a chief taking pictures and waiting for the engine to pull up instead of grabbin' the can and knocking the fire.

The Photog wasn't, as far as I can tell from the response to my original question.

Let me clear some stuff up about these pix.
First- The person taking the pictures was not a firefighter, nor a relative.
Second- I am able to see the information from the camera of when the photos were taken. There is really no delay. The initial picture to when the fire is knocked is only a couple minutes. The person taking the picture was there obviously prior to the fire dept. and the shots of them standing there waiting for water are taken in a rapid sequence.  So the fire did in fact grow in a very short period of time.
So although these photos tell a story of what happen, they do not tell the entire story.

Two quick comments:
1. This is a terrific series of photos to show the speed, power and fury of this killer phenomenon we are up against. 
2.  It is never a good idea to make comments about a job you were not at because you never have any idea what was going on that was not in the picture.
GREAT PHOTOS !

With all the firing back and forth about the damned photos, nobody has answered the question that has been asked several times: HOW IS THE INJURED FIREFIGHTER???
