Five-Alarm Fire Serves as Unlikely Backdrop to Wedding Photos

One AZ couple is thankful that number one was injured after a nearby fire nearly close down their wedding reception.

Extreme heat caused a fire to erupt at a nearby apt building below construction, causing massive clouds of billowing smoke to loom overhead while J. T. and Carly Morrissey had their first dance at wedding venue, Shenandoah Mill, in Gilbert, Arizona.

The moment was captured by their photographer in snaps that are presently getting attention on Facebook. Eric Butler of Pixel Dust Photography wrote as a caption, "The fire started just as we kicked off their first dance around six pm."

J. T. told ABC News that they didn't think anything was awry when he and his wife heard sirens.

His wife Carly agreed.

"I recollect getting on the dance floor and being excited about it," she recalled. "And I recollect making that first turn and just seeing that huge gray plume of smoke and [saying], 'What'south going on?' And I recollect thinking, 'OK, well, I'm sure it'south number big deal."

It turns out that the local fire dept had to deploy "more than forty fire trucks and one hundred twenty firefighters," according to its Twitter account, to fight the blaze that erupted on Civic Middle Drive. Although nearby residents had to be evacuated, there was surprisingly only one injury -- a firefighter had to be taken to the hospital for a heat-related injury, according to ABC News affiliate KNXV-TV in Phoenix.

J. T. said that he and other wedding guests were "extremely relieved" after hearing number one was seriously injured from the blaze.

"We're really thankful for all of the first responders and firefighters... and everyone that went there to create sure it stayed below control and create sure everybody was OK," he said.
