My neighbors house is burning, all but ash now. As I walked over from my house, I was worried about the surrounding forest.
We live out in the country, volunteer firemen out here. This home went up so fast it was gone before they had a chance. I don’t know if it being a trailer made that much of a difference.
These people lost everything including several of their pets. I was walking away when a fireman came over to tell the owner he had managed to pull two dogs out. He did not elaborate on what condition they were in.
I lost almost everything I had back in 99. Not as quick and violent as this was. I had to work at not crying right along with the wife as she watched her life disappear.
I am not usually a fire chaser but this lady lived next door to some close friends of mine. I thought it was their house on fire and I went to see if I could help. While I am glad for my friends, I am heart broken for these people. Tomorrow I will try and find out if the neighborhood is planning anything to help.
When a tornado went through here two years ago, everyone helped everyone. We are a small community and we care for and about each other.
I took a short video, you can find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uwsTdUl6vQU
