"Look, There's a House Fire!"

When I was leaving the grocery store last week, someone said, “Look, that house is on fire!”. The flames were going through the roof, but it was only smoke by the time I could get my car stopped across the street. I got there just as the emergency vehicles pulled up.

The owner was sitting on the opposite street corner, wrapped in a blanket that someone had given to him and was patting his dog's head, watching the house in flames.

The sky was a bright blue, but near the house when rescue arrived, it was completely smoke-filled.

You can barely see the two fire fighters standing on the smoking roof, trying to put out the flames at the rear of the house. What heroes!

      Oh my goodness - the poor man. Thankfully the fire department and a helpful neighbour were there to help comfort him.

      Excellent photos, Brenda! You really captured the sad event.
