A NOT SO FUN 2 DAYS


The last 2 days have been quite scary for our quiet neighborhood.

The house behind us had a terrible fire two mornings ago.

The family got out safely.  It was about 6 AM.




This shot is difficult to see, that's because of the clouds of smoke billowing out of the roof.

The blurred image is a fireman attempting to open up the tile roof.

This is taken from our backyard looking at the house on the other side of the fence.

There were 7 engines from our surrounding cities and about 14 men working

on the house.

It never spread to any of us.

Fire OUT, chain link fence put up, power turned off and the family went to stay at a hotel.


Yesterday morning we were awakened at about the same time.

Sirens blaring, engines arriving, banging and chopping could be heard.

We jumped from bed, got dressed and saw flames shooting from the same house behind us!




You can see the glow of the fire through the trees.




This is just too close for comfort.




We walked around the block to see that the house was still burning pretty well.




What a mess....




The Fire Captain gave an interview to KCRA 3 , our local news station.


Several ladies who were out walking their dogs

said they saw a person in black clothing and a hoodie

on the other side of the chain link fence running away from the house.

Not sure if this is accurate or not,

But.....

There are some very suspicious circumstances surrounding this home

and the family that lives there.

That's all I'm going to say about it now

 I will update you as the days go on.

Dave and I are so thankful for the First Responders and all the work they did.

Things could have been so much worse for all of us.

Don't forget to enlarge the photos.

so sad for the family and very scary thinking it might be arson.. glad you are safe, a fire like that could easily get out of control... God bless those fireman. about your comment about out of control. only one thing to do... go back to NO sugar NO white flour and then the desire to eat will go away. the thing about eating just one desert is you know the answer, it will take 21 days for it to get out of your system. been there done that and am praying now for you to over come... good luck...

Oh my goodness! It must not have been a windy day, as the fire seemed to be contained to the house itself. But how scary! Now I wonder about the second fire. Had the firemen missed some smoldering ashes, or did this person come back to finish it off?

I pray that if the fire was set intentionally that they find the person responsible. I hope it was not set intentionally the first time as I would hate to see a family lose a home because of someone else's stupidity.

Well, you have certainly been having some excitement in the neighbourhood. Back 30 or more years ago the house next door to where I was living caught fire. I woke to see orange and yellow lights flickering on the ceiling.... and sirens howling. Sadly a man was killed in that fire. I'm glad nobody was hurt in the fire behind your house. Keep us updated!
