Huge House Fire in Eau Claire

May 16, 2011 Travis Dewitz

A large fire in Eau Claire broke out on the night of May 15th just off of Birth Street on Putnam Street and the intersection with Omaha Street. Sounded like an abandoned home caught fire. The large house fire also started the close house next store on fire also. Eau Claire Fire Department did what they could to contain the fires and Altoona Fire Department was also called in as mutual aid.

Many photos will be uploaded in a special large gallery here.
Many more to come soon!

I. Love. Photography. I love it. It lightens my heart, fills my soul, and allows me to capture life the way that I see it. I constantly yearn to show life in a way that hasn’t been seen before, to bring images to people in a fresh and innovative way. My favorite focus in photography, my specialty I guess you would say, is Railroad Photography & Art. Something about the rumbling of these great, big, beautiful machines. The way they shake the earth beneath you as they rumble by, how they invade your chest and you can feel the rumble inside you. The plumes of heat on a hot day represented in a heat wave. Snaking through a western valley, void of trees or any other distracting element. Just the train, by itself, in it’s own inexplicable beauty and power. From the time I was a child, they have captured my imagination. I’ve recently gotten into portraiture a bit, and I want to bring some of my experiences with trains to that arena. To capture the power of a person, the sadness, loneliness, omniscience, pride, love, & carefree spirit in a way that hasn’t been done before. I want people to look at themselves in a photograph I have taken, and see a side of themselves that they think no one else has ever seen. Dewitz Photography is all about capturing a moment in a way that has never been seen before, capturing a beauty that some never knew was even there.
