Fire and Ice
A three-alarm fire gutted a late 18th century mansion in late January in the Roland Park area. Firefighters battled the blaze in frigid temperatures that were so cold that two fire hydrants were frozen and rendered inoperable. What was left behind the next day was a strange juxtaposition of destruction and beauty as water froze around the surrounding area formed interesting geometric shapes. Baltimore Sun staff photographer Karl Merton Ferron, who covered the fire for the newspaper, went back to scene the next day to record what Mother Nature’s cold snap had created in the wreckage.

What gorgeous photos to come out of such a tragedy. Such a lovely home with so many memories. I really feel
for the owner and his family as I know what it is like to lose a home. Thank you for taking these pictures and sharing them.
