A House Was Burned Last Week in My Neighborhood


A blog by Dr. Michael, 10/30/2005

You surely don't see this kind of scene everyday. A whole house was burned down last Thursday in my neighborhood. We drove by last evening. The scene is horrific. We don't know what happened and just wish that no one was hurt during the fire.

This has been only the second time I have ever seen in my own eyes a burned house after living in Houston for 15 years. So this must be a rare event and I hope it does not happen again. I saw an actual ongoing fire to a house about 12 years ago. The fire made half of the sky black. I felt the heat from across the street. The fire fighters were trying to control the fire so that it wouldn't spread to the neighboring houses. They actually went inside the house and shoot water from inside through the roof. They placed water on the top of the neighboring houses to avoid accidental burning. As a result, there could be more water damage to a house than fire damage.

I am sure the fire fighters went through this process on this one too. The entire roof was gone, either burned down by the fire or brought down by the water.

I heard that the fire happened on Thursday. It was too bad that I was not around. Otherwise, I would have taken some live pictures of the burning house.

On the surface and from the distance the house looked quite nice from the front yard.



But look more closely, you'll see the fire damage.



A closer up shows the details in the front porch.



On the side, you'll see a car was completed burned and so was the top of the detached garage.



From the other side, you can see what are left from the bedrooms on the second floor.



Are you scared? Will you play with matches again? Will you make sure your stove is not left on next time you leave your house?

Tomorrow is Halloween! We don't need any decoration in that part of our neighborhood.
Update: According to neighbors to this house, the fire was determined to be caused by arson. The owners intentionally set the house in fire!
