Today when Larry and I were working downstairs with the door opened we heard a muffled explosion...we didn't think too much of it until we heard two more....so I went to investigate. There were billows of black and shades of grey smoke in the sky. The garage/house slightly to the left of ours and a street over was on fire. It started in the garage which is seen burned to the ground. It was full of tires (we were having a free old tire pickup tomorrow down here where we live) paint, and some propane tanks....The firemen were able to save the house you see to the right but the house to the left looked to be a total loss also. The house is only a few years old. It was scary.... yet beautiful, colorful, mesmerizing, anticipated, and then just sad.. NO ONE was hurt. It could have been so much worse.
