A mostly silent witness to the fires on Lower Greenville

Television obviously is a visual medium that often is only as strong as its pictures. And the early Tuesday morning fires on Lower Greenville Avenue certainly underscored that.

NBC5's website, nbcdfw.com, has posted a two-and-a-half-minute video of the tragedy without any breathless reporter interjections. You can find it embedded on our Dallas-Fort Worth TV page as an example of how powerful natural sound -- or no sound at all -- can be in bringing this particular story home in stark, unadorned fashion.
