    HUGE fire next door PICS

    I woke up to a HUGE fire next door.
    Most of the pics were taken from my front porch and you can see my white apartment building in some pics.
    There were 2 counties that responded to the fire with 75+ firefighters on scene.
    All the water flooded the street.
    13 people were left homeless
    I think the fire was started by someone but details haven't been released yet.
    It scared the heck out of me. I saw some of the tenents in shock walking by and screaming, crying.
    I was going on straight adrenaline when I snapped most of my photos.
    some pics,























    aftermath,



    .
    Peace,
    Zero

    Wow. Awful stuff. Did they evacuate you and the people in your building?

    Brokken,
    No they didn't evacuate us.
    I thought the fire might jump over here when I first saw it.
    I was going to grab a bucket of water when I first saw the fire.
    There were embers landing all over the roof here.
    They did evacuate the houses next door though.
    The fire looked like it was out then flames started leaping out of the building again.
    I think it was 4-5AM when they finally got the fire out.

    Man, that's scary!

    We had a neighbor's house burn down once. Another time it was a whole shopping center/apartment that, from a mile away, was raining down chunks of charcoal an inch across.

    Scary stuff!
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
