Pier 29 Fire
I got up from the speaker phone to gaze at the action. (The call was about prepping for another call tomorrow. Meetings about meetings....so it goes in the corporate world.)
The fire appeared formidable with the flames clearly visible, but by 5 o'clock it was over. By the time I left the office at 6:30 traffic was back to normal.
[Update - 6/21: "The four-alarm blaze that tore through a warehouse on San Francisco's Pier 29 caused more than $2 million in damage, but the underlying pier survived the blaze unharmed, fire officials said Thursday."]
