Fire in our ‘hood

24 Jun

While prepping this morning, I thought maybe a compressor took a dump on a cooler or something. Funky burnt smell. I went outside to check the heat pump, and saw the house behind us billowing like crazy.

Fire trucks were already coming. No one was inside, except for two pooches. One was out, and then the firemen got the other out.

Basement fire it was, and the street is still closed off two hours later. Traffic on 6th is fine. Hope the damage is minimal.

    I was hoping this story would end with someone roasting a weiner on a stick. Or something.

    Oh no! The ugly house behind the Tomboy burned down???

    (My favorite picture is the one that’s just a picture of smoke. How existential…)
