  2. 2. IMAGES OUT OF THE ORDINARYABOUT THE FIREHAVING AN ONGOING PROJECT TO RECORD WHAT’S STILL LEFT OF LITTLEHAMPTON’S WEST BANK, WHENNEWS OF A BIG FIRE REACHED ME VIA TWITTER, I RUSHED TO THE SCENE, CAMERA IN HAND. I ARRIVEDABOUT 30 MINUTES AFTER THE FIRE STARTED AND MANAGED TO CAPTURE QUITE A BIT OF WHAT TOOKPLACE. EARLY THE NEXT MORNING I RETURNED TO SEE THE AFTERMATH OF THE FIRE. THE SMELL OFBURNING STILL HUNG IN THE AIR AS I SPOKE WITH A FEW OF THE PEOPLE WORKING ON THE SITE WHORECOUNTED THEIR STORIES OF WHAT HAPPENED. THE INTENSITY OF THE FIRE WAS OBVIOUS AS YOULOOKED AROUND THE CHARRED REMNANTS OF THE BUILDING WHERE IT HAD STARTED. IT WAS NOWCOMPLETELY DESTROYED, ALL THAT WAS LEFT WAS A PILE OF BLACKENED RUBBLE. WITH SO MANYINTERESTING IMAGES, I THOUGHT I’D PUT THEM TOGETHER IN THIS QUICKLY ASSEMBLED PHOTOSTORY. THISTHEN IS A TIMELINE OF WHAT I SAW FROM THE AFTERNOON OF MAY 20TH TO THE MORNING OF MAY 21ST.
