The other morning I was looking out the window when I noticed smoke rising from the direction of the soccer field. I went out to investigate and brought my camera along to document the scene.  The smoke was coming from near the end of the basketball court.  There's a large overgrown area that will eventually have a building on it, but for now it is just brush and trash.  I think maybe it was a brush pile that caught on fire.  Trash burning along the side of the road is a very common scene here.  I’m not actually sure who starts the fires.  I think maybe it is the wild dogs that run loose in the area.

One of the interesting things about the fire was that no one really seemed to be all that interested or concerned.  People walked past on their way to class or played basketball.  However, no one really seemed to care much about the fire which was churning out thick black smoke like plastic was burning.  I watched for about 30 minutes until it finally started to die down.
