Flint Photos: Carriage Town Fire, Summer 2010

Photographer Lori Dellinger writes: "The photo was taken on August 18, 2010. This was the year that it felt like the whole city would burn down. Some friends and I were at The Torch when word came that there was a vacant house burning in Carriage Town. A friend said this had been a gorgeous home at one time with so much potential if it was in the right hands. For me, the photo symbolized the hopelessness that many people were feeling as we watched our city burn."

You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
