House next door burns down

We came home Sunday to discover the house behind us in flames. It was frightening, especially because I thought it was our house that was on fire as we drove up. (Click on the photo to see a larger size)

Apparently, there was some kind of an explosion, then the flames started. Speculation is that a BBQ may have blown up. Fortunately the family of four got out safely and are uninjured. But the house is a write-off.

I've got some other photos that I'll add to this page later.

One thing this does is make you realize how fast these things happen. I think I should consider more insurance...and make sure I've got off-site back-ups.
