As a staff photographer at The Bellingham Herald I never know when I am going to get called into work. Last night I was called in to take photos of a fire off Alabama Street in Bellingham. It was an abandoned house and no one was injured, but it served as a great practice for myself for future breaking-news events. I really enjoy covering breaking news because you never know what you are getting into and trying to capture a quality photo is a challenge. For these photos I used my Cannon 5D and a 50mm lens.
