Burning House

everything worked as they thought it would. they had somehow rigged it for many places to start a fire. no one was hurt. some trees bordering a neighbors property did burn. they put up a water screen on the house next door. it was vacant so if it did catch, they were to just let it burn. there were many audible pops during the fire, from aerosol cans they think. none of the chemicals were kinds that would explode. since the house was so cluttered with chemicals and clutter, they really didn't get in to see what was there. tomorrow they will check the ashes and make sure it is safe. also will test the dirt. we, in escondido, are glad it is over. three weeks after discovery to gone is a long time. freeway closed during fire in case of flying materials , that might have started another fire . freeway very close to house. nothing really dramatic to see, just a house burning down.

I saw the headline earlier but hadn't read the story. The headline I saw said San Diego, so I didn't realize how close it was to you. Yikes!
