Fire fire FIIIIRE. heh heh heh.

I get woken up by a loud bang. Come to find out that Fox Lumber & Hardware (Which has been around forever and a day.) in my hometown  is burning. Which a lumberyard burning is always massive.

Oh, and the bang is from the propane tanks that were inside exploding.

Now the thing is, it started around noon. I leave for work at 2:30. It's still going. That was expected.

After I get off for work, and 12 hours after it started, I go by to see the aftermath. Save it's not the aftermath yet because IT'S STILL BURNING. I mean actual decent FLAMES. Goddamn.

The kicker: Since there's two buildings there, the owner is still planing to open in the morning.

(The story. Skip to the 16th paragraph for an internet based mistype. :P)
