Shit! The neighbour's house is on fire. I gotta leave before the fire trucks get here or I'll be late for work!

- E V I L O U T -

Since I have time, here's more info: At about three I heard a cop siren chirp nearby so I peeked out my computer room window to see a squad car parked in the neighbour's driveway. Nothing particularly unusual about that since they go through the area once in a while. But being three I decided I'd better start get ready for work due to my earlier hours. I peeked out the front door as I passed by & saw smoke billowing from the roof vents of the house across the street! A fire truck honked in the distance. The nearest fire plug was uphill from me & the house was downhill so I knew that if I didn't act fast I'd be blocked in. I rushed to grab my bag & coat, abandoning lunch just to get out the door but when I got in my car I was approached by a fat sheriff who told me no one would be able to leave in a vehicle until the area was clear. The hoses across the street started filling with water & I knew he was right.

I don't know anything about the situation yet; how it started or if anyone was injured. All I know of the neighbour is what I've seen of them from across the street. I really hope no one was hurt & that they have a good homeowners insurance policy. It may seem cold that I was more concerned about getting out to work on time but the emergency vehicles are already here & there is really nothing I can do help other than get out of their way.

I'll update with photos & video of the blaze later tonite.

UPDATE the Second:
I spoke again with the fat Sheriff & it sounds like no one was home when the fire started.

You can now download my video of the fire here(6.16MB)
I spoke briefly with a woman from channel 3 news (sorry Caleb) & gave her a CD with my photos & video. They may make it to the afternoon/evening broadcasts but you saw it here first!

    So it looks like nobody I've been friends with since 2009 has been using LJ recently, which is kindof sad. Not that I've been part of the solution…

    I'm pretty sure none of the people that followed me & commented on my posts use LiveJournal any more. If you still do, please comment. - E V I…
