Saturday morning, driving out of the neighborhood, my jaw dropped to the floor. One house completely burned to the ground and the one next to it was a burned out shell. The street is under construction and neither house was finished, therefore I am assuming no one was in either house. What terrifies me is that this is the next street over from us and we didn't hear a thing in the night!!

It is also terrifying that one is completely burned to the ground- how long did it take the county fire department to reach it? The blaze had to be visible from the main drag, so even if no one was leaving or entering the neighborhood, there must have been cars on the main road. There are some major disadvantages to not having city services and being at the mercy of the county. And was it arson? Is there an arsonist on the loose? In our neighborhood?
