Unbelievable

Aerial footage of the wildfire aftermath.

There is a short 15 sec advertisement before the footage.

The house they zoom in at the 1:55 mark sat directly across from my old home. Every last one of my old neighbors have lost their homes. I keep staring at the destruction with both shock and awe. Strange as it sounds this event has been harder on my psyche than the fire that destroyed my home two years ago. The area is still closed so I have been unable to speak with my friends but by all accounts everyone got out before the wind drive flames swept through the canyon.

Travis, that is just heartbreaking. Glad your former neighbours got out safely.

How devastating for all concerned. Hard for you to see your old neighbourhood gone, I'm sure.

Shock and devastation... it was difficult enough to hear of your personal house fire (was it already 2 years ago?) via Reb and Hilary, but to have old friends and neighbors go through one of "grander" scale... so very awful.

I do thank you for stopping by and commenting on my blog.

Oy, this is so sad.

Hilary said...

I'm so sorry this happened in your former neighbourhood. How shocking and unnerving it must feel for everyone.

Old Kitty said...

Terrible. :-(

I'm glad your neighbours are ok.

Take care

I'm so sorry for your old neighbors, Travis. And for you too - that brings back memories and has to be hard.

OMG! I wondered how that fire affected you guys! Scary to think that if you hadn't lost your home 2years ago you would have now. EEK!!!
