Excitement in the Neighborhood
The fire department is currently working a few houses down on a neighbor's chimney and roof. The fire seems to confined to that part of the house along with part of the roof. The fire department got here fast enough so that the whole house didn't go. The wind is blowing and some sparks were flying across to some of other houses. With 6 fire trucks on hand I don't think anything will happen. My neighbor is OK. He managed to get the dogs out, but doesn't know where the cat is. Hopefully hiding somewhere.
All the neighborhood is out watching. It's quite a show. Two of the trucks had the ladders out to reach the roof. The firemen seem to have everything under control. It doesn't look like there will be that much damage. My neighbor is very lucky!
