The Fire at the the Industrial Area in North Minneapolis

A couple weeks ago, firefighters were called on by a bystander that reported smoke coming from a storage dome. The location was at the 3700th block of Washington Ave and just after 4:00 a.m. on that Friday morning. The building was located in the Upper Harbor Terminal and didn’t have electricity or lighting. The absence of electricity and lighting proved to make things difficult for the firefighters and that led to having them stay on the scene for quite some time. Adding on to these problems was all the smoke that streamed out of the dome building. But finally, at 11 a.m., the firefighter crew completed the job and left. The dome was operated by the company called OTI, who accepts frozen or packaged food, then separates the cardboard and plastic to send the food stored inside to composting sites. The property was owned by The City of Minneapolis, but the stored food was not theirs. The site manager for OTI, Max Milinkovich said that the company started using the location as a food transfer station five months ago. But the question still wanders off to how the fire could have started, and fortunately, no one got hurt. As claimed by Milinkovich that, “ … no one was in there or around there when it started,” (WCCO | CBS Minnesota, 2020, Crews Battled Flames For Hours At Industrial Areas In North Minneapolis).

Many thanks to the firefighters and the bystander that aided in ceasing the flames. If not for the bystander then the fire could have gotten worse that morning, and of course the brave firefighters that helped resolve the issue. As a friendly note to everyone, let’s all help to be more aware of the situations happening around us and to help prevent accidents and life threatening events from occurring. So don’t hesitate to make the call for help.

Step Up: Week 9 Day 3

Today was kind of stressful. The time limit made it difficult for me and my actors to make mistakes or tweak things/camera angles. I’m glad we get an extra hour tomorrow for editing so we can really clean up all the clips we got today. I hope this turns out good because we put a lot of effort into this final project.


Week 9 Day 3

Today was pretty fun. We got done with production for our last film. This will probably be the last time that I blog. Byee

StepUp19: Week 8 Day 3

Today was busy. I really doubted I would get chosen for the script/director role. I’m a bit overwhelmed being the director. I really liked the other scripts, Yer’s was the one that stood out to me the most. I feel less stressed for this project because I trust my camera man and the gaffer to really visually represent my story well. This time I will do my best to be a better more straightforward director.


Week 8 Day 3

Today we voted for which film we wanted to do, we’re using Madison’s script. I think it’ll be good if we can just act well and if we have good shots. I also liked Yer’s script.
