Firetown

So last night an old woodworking shop in town caught fire, they thought it was out. It wasn’t, this morning it flared up at a nearby business and quickly spread to the business next door which collapsed and the meth clinic on the other side, gutting it. The only 2 buildings on that block are being deluged with water to try to stop the spread to those businesses. Terrible loss for some local merchants who I am sure will suffer greatly at this loss even with insurance. We were awakened shortly after 4 a.m. to fire trucks and immediately started the scanner, this is happening just 2 shorts blocks from my buildings and is causing a full 6 block shutdown of the main street, traffic is a little chaotic as some parking lots have been barricaded to stop drivers from running the barriers. Kinda scary in a way as it is the biggest fire ever in out tiny hamlet. Kudos to the fire and police departments for working tirelessly until late last night and from early morning to combat a tragic event. One man was taken to hospital who owned and lived above the one business,.1468562_602350133151682_2127874499_n 1484420_602430563143639_224172215_n 1499394_552538931490638_1587261043_n 1506801_602344359818926_5661150_n 1506972_602236906496338_8000839_n - Copy
