No, unfortunately this is not a cool Christmas lighting effect, but a real apartment on fire that I photographed last night on my way home. The scene was very impressive as it had just started and the firemen were still on the way. I really hope no one was in this place... Like I already said once, there are not that many fires per year in Paris, but of course, all buildings are so attached to each others, that it can quickly become dangerous for the neighborhood. FYI, here is a map of fires for 2008 with a breakdown by arrondissement.
