    Ya. It is over now, (Finally) but the house is 20 feet away, if not 10 from my house, and it is a mess... here.. it was on the news.. Click Thankfully no one was at home.. I spotted smoke coming out of the house, but my mom didn't believe me, 'cause I am paranoid, (i think the worst case scenario) It also looked like it was coming from the chimney, but I thought it was weird, for no one was home. So I shrug it off. And wouldn't you know it... 10 minutes later, my brother (he was driving home from after school study thing) runs into the house, "What is going on!?" "Their house is on fire!!" And sure enough, flames were 10-25 feet high! I was so scared, I had never been so scared in my life! (My math tutor was helping me at the time, who was also a neighbor to this house) I grab my cell phone, and my mom grabs her phone. We both call. She is not panicking, I am. So, in response to her call, one fire truck came.. In response to my call, nine freaking fire trucks come. 9! This was a ONE alarm fire. (10 trucks for one alarm!? Jeez, how many for 5 alarm??) Anyway, I am standing in my driveway, (while I was waiting for the firefighters) holding the hose, just to make sure the fire doesn't decide to come over to my house. (Remember, I am paranoid) And when they came, I was staring, thinking that only one truck came... THEN my call is responded to, more come, just lining the street I am on. It took about an hour to contain it. What started it? The lint trap in a dryer. It somehow caught fire and then smoldered all day, THEN erupts into flames, and I eventually saw smoke.

    Phew, I'm glad that nobody got hurt. But I'm sorry for your neighbors, the house seems to be destroyed
    It must have been a very scary experience

    I'm so glad you and your family are okay, midnight. And I'm really glad that no one was at home at the time, however, as Mistery said, it's horrible news about their house.

    This just goes to show that appliances are EVIL. This reminds me of the time that one of the people in my neighborhood was literally struck by lightning.(she lived,though.)

    They put a tarp over the gaping hole so the house won't get even more screwed up.. 'cause it is raining out.
