Last night, after Cameron and I finally settled on what to watch on Netflix, we heard what sounded like fire engine sirens..and they were CLOSE. I looked out the front window and saw nothing, Cameron happened to look out the back window and saw a firetruck go down the street behind our house! He curiously walked out back and yelled for me to come out there! What we saw was like a blow to the stomach - huge flames that lit up the sky, coming from the roof of a house maybe just 5 houses down and behind from us!
Cameron is friends with a guy on Facebook that actually lives on that street, and he posted this picture last night. News reports state that there was a man pulled from the house and taken to the hospital, where he was last reported in critical condition. I sure hope he is ok!!No determination has been made as to what caused the fire yet.
On a happier note, my best friend, Emily, has been at the hospital since 7am this morning and is currently in labor with her first born, Lane! The last update that I got, about 30 minutes ago, she was only 4cm dilated and was waiting on her epidural.
