The Year in Review: The hottest night of the year
I have covered a couple of structure fires in my career but I can’t remember a year where I covered so many. There was a mobile home fire, a garage and part of a home burned on F Street and even a pharmacy burned one Sunday afternoon. But taking the cake for the most spectacular blaze was late evening fire down the street from my home.
It is bad when I hear sirens at night, worse when I hear them stop close to where I live. So imagine my surprise to see this house fire just a few doors down. No one was hurt but the fire lit up the night along Grant Line Road and was quite the sight.
