4-12 - Historical Perspective
- Jupiter tanker exposition in Bay City Sept. 16, 1990 - Todd Shorkey

I had been a career firefighter for only about four months. I was sitting at my station, having a cup of coffee at the end of my 24 hour duty shift when a call came in for a "boat" fire. as soon as we pulled out of our station, we knew it was more than a boat fire. Arriving at the scene at Total Petroleum, we saw the tanker Jupiter ablaze, with flames shooting into the air. I began to wonder what I was getting myself into with my new career a firefighter.

These photos are from my collection and were taken from the dock at Total and from a USCG Helo during a flight with one of our firefighters to overview the scene. Details of the accident
