FIRE DAMAGE

WRITTEN BY REX
Custom Smiley LIKE MOST PEOPLE, WE FINALLY GOT NOSY ABOUT THE BURN AREA AT LAKE TAHOE. WE TOOK A DRIVE OUT THROUGH THE AREA AND SNAPPED THESE PICTURES FROM THE CAR. THE THING THAT AMAZED US THE MOST WAS THAT THERE WERE HOMES COMPLETELY BURNED TO THE GROUND AND RIGHT NEXT DOOR THERE WOULD BE A HOME COMPLETELY UNTOUCHED, LIGHTS ON, PEOPLE HOME, DOGS BARKING AND PERFECTLY NORMAL. UNFORTUNATELY I DIDN'T GET A PICTURE TO ILLUSTRATE THIS POINT.

WE CLEARLY DID NOT BELONG IN THE AREA SIGHT SEEING, AS UTILITY TRUCKS WERE BUZZING AROUND WORKING AND CLEAN UP HAS STARTED.

BETWEEN LAKE TAHOE AND RENO THERE IS ANOTHER FIRE UNDER WAY THAT HAS ALREADY BURNED 200 SQUARE MILES. IT HAS THREATED 400 HOMES AND IS ONLY 15% CONTAINED.

MOTHER NATURE CAN SURE BE CRUEL AND UNPREDICTABLE.









NOTICE THAT MOST OF THESE HOMES HAD BEAUTIFUL FIREPLACE?
