USA — Firefighters tried to save George Reichs home as it was engulfed in flames on Blackjack Lane, Saturday. They ran into his home only to quickly retreat and on their way out grabbed seven family photographs from the hallway wall. They were the only items saved from the home.
I found Reich Sunday morning picking through the rumble searching for anything of value. Oklahoman photography intern Zach Gray and photographer Bryan Terry also met Reich Saturday evening as Blackjack Lane burned.
The large grassfire claimed seven homes and three mobile homes around the Coffee Creek area in Edmond, Okla. See The Oklahoman photographs from Saturday and Sunday by clicking the links below.
