Another fire

Remnants of fireThis is pretty much all that’s left of the house just down and across from FAR Manor. It seems the old guy was cooking in the kitchen and something got away from him. His grandson came in and got him out, so nobody was hurt. But the house… well, you can see it. There’s not much left even to clean up.

Daughter Dearest said she heard the car (one of which you can see through the trees) blow up.

I’m not sure where the former residents went. They put up a “caretaker” trailer (going behind the zoning board’s back), but the grandfather is in a wheelchair.


  1. Gee Far! Holy Smoke! It's sure hits home when it happens so close, eh? I hope the grandfather had it insured. At least his grandson got him out! Nice to have that kind of insurance.

    Thanks for the link to my site. I hope people will check it out. Every dark cloud has a silver lining, but sometimes it takes a trained eye to see it.

    Thanks, yooper

  2. Scary! Completely gone. Wow. Glad that no one was hurt.

  3. Scary stuff. I'm glad to see that nobody was hurt.

  4. Hi all!

    Yeah, my dad's experience shows how quick things can happen. Mrs. Fetched said that the wind, fortunately, was blowing toward an open field so there wasn't any danger of catching another house.


Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
