All wet yeah you might need a raincoat
Shakedown thieves walking in broad daylight
Three hundred sixty five degrees
Burning down the house
-Talking Heads

This house is in my neighborhood... The Family got out of the house safely. This photo was taken about 30 minutes after it started. The whole third and 2nd floors burned completely.. Took 15 firetrucks to finally put the fire out..
The family had just finished renovating this historical house a few months ago. They worked on it for 4 years, now they have to start all over again.

The house was built in 1904..
