FIRE!!

12 posts in this topic

Saturday night/Sunday early AM our next door neighbors had a fire, this fire began in the chimney. Nobody was hurt, but what started out as a seemingly small fire finished as a major interior home destruction as the water and smoke damage is bad. I have processed one image and more will follow. (this one reminds me of a 911 image on a smaller scale)

Nobody likes to see someone lose a house, especially in this economy and my prayers are with those homeowners. [Note from admin: Please see forum rules before posting again. Thank you]

That's a good image, Buzz. It's very hard to take images that involve destruction of people's homes/property. It's a tough situation. I think you did well. Thank God no one was hurt.

This is a captivating image. Hope the neighbors will be alright.

They are all well and in good spirits amazingly! No personal belongings were lost that they were disappointed losing. The cleanup has begun and are told it will be 3-6 months before they will be able to move back home. There insurance company is taking care of them in the meantime. All of us neighbors are doing things to help them out... I am going to be doing there lawncare this spring/summer... we are also offering up our home as a location for their sons H.S. Graduation party.

Anyways, here are the remainder of the exterior images.

Good to hear they are being taken care of.

Kudos to you for offering to host their son's graduation party. Sounds like you have a good group of neighbors.

    • Hey you guys-you forget I'm an old Alaskan.  I know all I need to know about the dingbat and her famous family. If you are actually accepting her blather as useful intelligence and knowledge than you are as squirrely as she is. Let her just fade away for Pete's sake.
    • Hi Dave.  We have talked about this briefly a year or two ago.  Due to the paranoia factor on this site I and most others aren't here as much.  I do miss guys like you Dave.  I remember the pic of your camper at Itasca so we took a drive through this summer.   I wondered where your spot was.  Man I hope you come out of this alright Dave.  My Uncle had diabetes bad and finally lost the battle.  The docs said change your diet or take the shot.  He said give me the shots.  Well that lasted for many years and his body finally gave in..  He should have changed his diet too.  I took him to a couple of bear baits he wanted to see and he told me his feet were finally giving in.  AND he was a tough guy.   Anyway Dave we all love you and I hope you can persevere....   I am thinking good things for you so you think positive too.....    Barry.    Hope this isn't deleted for one of their paranoid reasons...  If it is deleted I will never be back as many others.   So sad.....
    • It is interesting how people got out so early.  I have done it too.  3 or 4 hits with the spud and it is alright.......  NO it isn't ....  It is manly to talk about getting on the ice first.  Well now that I am older I realize it is stupid talk not manly.  The fishing sales world is just as guilty.  They talk about the first ice fishing being so good.  They actually are hugely responsible for getting stupid people out on thin ice.  The lets make a buck is more important than anything.  ANYTHING!!! 
    • Great pictures.   I'm used to seeing eagles, but those pictures are outstanding. 
    • Didn't I just do that?   Can't you read? 
    • Only if they have a drinking problem and maybe me implants.  That's all the Canadian folks care about....
    • That sounds like a great idea. 
    • I know perfectly well how phishing works.   Typical Liberal thinks anyone who is not toeing the party line is ignorant.    It isn't that hard to phish a fool like podesta.
    • I feel like we were just water skiing not to long ago!  Definitely caught a sun burn for deer season ha.  I'll be doing my fishing at the grocery store for a bit yet.
    • Remember, your fishing for pickerel!!  No such thing as walleye where your fishing
