just got home from work and cound't get up my street.
Police had it blocked off, fire trucks everywhere. I went around the other end and talked the Cop into letting me go to my house. This is 3 houses away from me on the other side of the st. Big family with little kids live in the house. Heard everyone got out safe.
fire dept and police have left and I snapped this pic.
Hopefully they had insurance. If they do, that will be the best thing to happen to that old wooden fire trap.
Very scary thing to happen none the less and thank the big guy up there that no one was hurt.
They'll get a newly rebuilt home out of the deal now.
I hope they had GOOD insurance, but even so it'll take months before they can even start to rebuild. On top of which, notice the hole in the roof, the house is probably a complete loss.
They'll probably end up moving to another house, and the house'll get boarded up for months.
This kind of thing has to be very hard to explain to a little kid.
