Brush fire destroys homes

I have photographed many fires over my 12 years of working as a newspaper photographer. Often, I see exhausted firefighters stop to rest nearby, but this time I noticed a local resident, Betty Carter, right, go up to one of the firefighters. She told me she had just asked if he was okay and if he needed anything. I thought it was a sweet moment as a large brush fire ended up destroying four homes in the Riverwood Farm community in Greer.
