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,
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.
