Devil's Night Trip 10/29/2009-11/01/2009



Whether it was the Angel's Night patrols, the ordinance prohibiting the sale of gasoline in anything other the motor vehicles, or the heavy rains on the night of the 30th the Devil's Night fires of the City of Detroit decreased yet for another year. This saved a cash strapped city, already hurt by huge declines in the auto industry, thousands of dollars in overtime.  But those that felt they still had to keep the tradition alive managed to start just over 100 structure fires. Here are some examples of the fires which I took in along with my fellow fire photographers from the Northeast.
