Fire! Fire! Fire!

We were awakened around midnight to the sound of my husbands fire pager going off. They had a structure fire in full swing. He raced to the fire station to find out a house 2 doors away from the fire station was ablaze. I don't know if anyone was hurt yet since I have only had minimal communication with him since he left but I do know there was a hair salon on the bottom floor and at least 3 apartments above it. Here are a few pictures that hubby sent to me this morning on my cell phone. I thank God that he and his fellow firemen did not get hurt and I am praying that no one else was injured as well. These pictures show the house still standing but when I drove close to it this morning on my way to work at 8:00 there was nothing left of it except for a pile of burnt wood. The firemen were still on the scene controlling the hot spots. I did manage to get a wave from my hubby so I know he is alright.

Sorry but I couldn't get these pictures in order. Maybe I can post one later that shows the house completely down. It is such a shame that this had to happen. Hopefully they will find what caused this fire and the displaced families can get their lives back in order.

Have a blessed day everyone.



  1. How sad for the families and business involved. I pray that they can start to build back their lives.

  2. What a shame. I too hope nobody was hurt, and that the families and business involved can recover quickly and get back to normal.
    Glad you had a wave from hubby, and you know he is safe!

  3. So sad. Hope everyone is okay and they can find housing again. May the Lord continue to watch over your husband and his co-workers as they serve your community!

  4. Oh Amy, I didn't know your husband had a dangerous job! How grateful I am for police and firemen; but when we hear the alarm go off down the road from us, we pray for those serving as well as the victims.

  5. Oh my !!!! I hope everyone was o.k. I'm adding them to my prayers that they find housing and can get their lives back in order soon. Sending out thanks to your Hubby and all like him that are in this line of work.

  6. Amy,
    I hope everyone is ok. Glad your hubby was able to wave to you for you to know that he was safe. My son-in-law is a fireman...I worry everytime he goes on a call. But they are all heros in my eyes.
