In the middle of the night
We were woken just after midnight last night by police cars in our yard and voices and finally the door bell rang. The garage up the end of our property here in CT (so our landlords) was on fire with 30 foot flames. There were police cars everywhere and 2 fire engines plus a couple of fire department trucks.
When I woke up at 6 this morning the last of them were just driving off. Most of the damage is on the far side of the garage, but it will have to be knocked down. It's where our landlord kept his extra stuff from his restaurant. I took photos to show the 3 youngest kids who slept all through it- even when we went in to their rooms to close the windows. I'm a bit tired this morning....
