Yesterday afternoon we looked out the window and saw the neighbor’s house burning. The house is across the street, diagonally down from ours. Then came the sirens and fire trucks, and after awhile it was put out. Fortunately, everyone got out safely, no one was hurt, and the fire didn’t get to any of the trees on the back of the lot, nor were any other houses involved.
A scary sight, in person and up close! Barbara took these with her phone. A large part of the roof was burned, as well as much of the interior, it seems. This morning, the house is boarded up, and we’re guessing it will be uninhabitable for a long while. No idea how it started.
