Day #59

The other day we were woken up by sirens. Several of them – and close. Later that morning, Andy checked the news and it turned out that a house just down the block had a fire. A nice, big home that was under construction and nearly complete. We had seen kids there playing outside and were worried that the family had been hurt. Thankfully, the article said that the family was set to move in 3 weeks and no one was injured. Can you imagine having a nearly complete new home, then seeing it destroyed just before you move in? (The family lived 2 houses away, so they saw it all 😦 )

The damage might look minor from this photo, but there is smoke damage showing in other areas, and apparently the upper floors collapsed into the basement. I’m assuming it’s a loss. Luckily there were no injuries and hopefully they didn’t lose any other belongings!
