    Sad.

    I hope that their insurance is sufficient for them to recover.

    There may be a safety lesson in this for our workshop practices.

    Fortunately it did not consume their home. Very sad for the loss of their pets. Everything else is replaceable except for the memories. Coming back from a total-loss fire is a difficult task and could take many years.....over 35 years for me. Haven't thought about it for many months until now.

    Glad James and Kathy are still with us and hopefully will be back in business in a few months.

    Yup, my parents lost almost everything when I was 8. Pre Civil War plantation home in the country, no fire protection (which meant no insurance), burned to a hole in the ground on Thanksgiving. Only thing salvaged was a turkey from the chest freezer, perfectly cooked.

    Hate to hear this. Pray for a quick recovery. A fire or flood is a terrible lost.
