Hey guys, sorry for the delay. DPT just told me about this thread, but I see you have your answers already. I was at that fire and since it became a defensive battle so quickly, we had time to take lots of pictures.

This first picture is great. The guy on top of the truck is a past Mayor of Ocean City, Roland "Fish" Powell. This is the man that the convention center is named after. He is a gold badge member of the fire company and came out to help. What a man, still giving his all for his community.

That's enough, you get the idea. Not many fire pics because everybody was busy until we got it darkened down. Once we had the defensive attack set up, the water department advised that we were flowing in excess of 10,000 gallons a minute. The fire destroyed a lot of that block on the boardwalk, but we made damn sure that it wasn't gonna go any further.
