Fire

This picture was taken about 5 pm on Tuesday from my office.
Smoke from a fire at the airport
The fire was apparently a fuel fire at the airport, according to the local news:
Crews quickly contained a two-alarm fire that was burning at a Logan Airport fuel farm Tuesday afternoon. Black smoke could be seen for miles from the fire on Prescott St. near the economy parking lot.

The fire was in one of 12 underground fuel pumps and started at 5:00pm.
The news article says that the fire was "quickly contained", and the picture I took just a few minutes after the first one, at 5:04pm, confirms it:
The fire is gone and the smoke is beginning to dissipate.
Fortunately, no one was hurt, and as far as anyone can tell, it was an accident. It was a little alarming seeing that out my window, though.
