Fire Next Door on Felspar St.

· 2 min read

Late Saturday night, December 13th, I was about to go to sleep when I heard what I thought was the usual PB police/fire siren.   I made my way to bed, but then I kept hearing more and more, and the rumble of large diesel engines seemed to be really close.  My next thought was that they may be closing the street for the parade tomorrow, but I wanted to make sure.  I went up to the roof and to my surprise, the apartment complex two houses down was on fire.  There was a lot of smoke, maybe 4 firetrucks, 3 ambulances and several other emergency vehicles.  Jess and I really love our rooftop, but I never thought it would be good for a front row seat of firemen attempting to rescue our neighbors by chainsawing through their roof!

Anyways, I happened to take some video, most of which is grainy since my little canon camera isn't the best at dark videos.  Very scary stuff overall, but I don't think anyone was hurt from what I can tell, and that old apartment has seen better days:)
