Incendiary

On of the former gems of our neighbourhood is no more. There was a three alarm fire in the neighbourhood last night, the only victim, one of the neighbourhood's oldest houses. Deb met the lady that lived there, and she gave her an old chair, that we now have in our living room. She was a pack rat, the whole house was full of junk (I'm sure there were a few treasures in there too). Her son lived with her, and was responsible for a lot of the illegal activities in the neighbourhood, he'd just got out of jail a few weeks ago. I guess the only good thing, is that hopefully they'll keep him locked up a little longer this time. Anyway here's the story as I found it online. So I guess they'll be building condos there now, they said the building would be torn down, before noon today.

Wow, what crazy drama. Glad to hear the woman is ok, but sad to hear the house is gone. Maybe when the smoke has cleared you can sneak over and salvage the old hardware...

They fenced off the house, so no chance of getting the hardware. I'm glad she's okay, and I hope she owned the house, since the lot is worth a small fortune.
