My friend was right, this is blog material that I didn’t need or want. Yesterday, late in the noon hour, we started out to the post office, but before we got into the Jeep, we heard sirens approaching. The emergency vehicles turned on to the road we live off of, so we waited to see where they were heading. The first fire truck stopped at the fourth house past my driveway to the east. Then I could see the smoke coming from their house. The owners of this house own the property that borders part of the east edge of my place, close to where my son has his place.
It sounded like more fire fighting support was on the way, so we headed on down to the post office. On our way back, we went the long way around the block and came past the site of the fire. It didn’t look good, smoke was coming out the eves all around the roof and there must have been close to a dozen emergency vehicles there.
We got past and pulled in to my place and parked. My wife and I walked down toward my son’s place to get a better look. Although it looked like it had not flared up too bad, it sure didn’t look good. Lots of smoke, crackling and some loud “bangs” were coming from the inside. The heat must have been exploding stuff and maybe ammunition or fireworks were going off. Don’t know what exactly was exploding. We walked back up to our house to get my camera, but just then my son’s girl friend and her father came driving up the driveway from my son’s house. They said that they were there feeding his animals. We got talking and they wanted to see the new motor-home, so I didn’t get pictures.
I always hate to see or hear of homes burning. Even if everyone escapes along with the pets, things are lost that can never be replaced. The home that burned was not a big expensive place but it was someone’s castle. I don’t know the people that live there, don’t even know their name. I do know that the man is or was a guard at the
prison. Hope to find out more about it
Now you all have a great day, you hear?
