Around 2:15 today, Thraicie looked out the front window and saw a puff of smoke and thought it was strange there was a semi-truck on the block over. Well, 6 or 7 firetrucks later (about 10 minutes), it became clear there was a major fire in the building across the street.
The people got out safely, and a kitten was saved by the Fire Fighters. At the time of this writing, two blocks are still blocked off and it’s a bit of a hike to get to the store.
