When news of the apartment fire in Edmond got to the Photo department at The Oklahoman,  Staff Photographer Chris Landsberger was sent toward the smoke. From the ninth floor windows at The OPUBCO tower, DOP Doug Hoke and I could see the flames from the fire that was about 8 miles away. Landsberger ended up spending about 4 hours photographing the fire, taking breaks to send pictures back from the car, in order to meet deadlines back at the paper. Meanwhile, just two miles away, I photographed a candlelight vigil for Bicycle Bob, a homeless man in Edmond, who was killed this week. A young man named Bryce Camp organized the event that drew hundreds of people to the Market Place in Edmond.
