The fire was real bad. They had to house down houses and my house which is down the street smelled like smoke. I am glad no one was hurt.

Nice people that live there, they speak to you all the time.

I have a hunch that the latest cold weather spell has something to do with it, but that's my take on it.

Here's hoping that everybody's okay.
