Got home from going to bass pro shop. My lower next door neighbor started up her car as I was walking behind it and I got a whef of what smelled like bad engine care. Thought nothing of it and went inside.
Kitty runs to the backdoor and is staring out the door. Open the blinds and door to let her out. Step outside and I see my neighbor's house, flames POURING out of his porch. I yelled "omg brandon there's a fire!!!"
It got so big so fast. It was so scary. Our landlord lives right next to him. I ran to make sure everyone was outside and okay. And I saw my landlord unleashing all anger on her next door neighbor. "I told you to not smoke inside!!". Stopped dead in my tracks and just left it be. Watched in horror as the entire 2nd story was affected as well.
And the thought hit me. What if that was our 2nd unit. The guinea pigs, the dog, the cat and my fish tanks. I cried. The thought of them being harm by this. It tore my heart. I went inside and held my pug and pet my pigs. We have no renters insurance but after seeing that. We'll be getting some. And it worries me even more about the cat. We're upstairs. Screen in porch. No way for our feral cat to get out. She ran and hid under hubby's recliner. God to think of what would happen to her *blaw*
I'm glad everyone's okay. But this honestly could of easily been prevented by kicking out the tenet. But he's sure to get kicked out now and sued.
