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.
