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.

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.

    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
