Came Home To This

We live down the street, got some smoke into the building, but nothing like people who live on Grove Street, especially those in adjoining buildings.

One fireman told me when the fire got out of control they were having a difficult time battling the smoke, so they pulled back from the buildings and went with a "Surround and Drown" strategy.

It's a mess - they're still pouring water on it now, but the smoke has finally just about subsided.

Having suffered through a fire years ago, I know how devastating this can be.

Not a good Thanksgiving to the people displaced by this tonight.
