Saturday 5:30a.m. awoke to smoke and neighbor yelling "fire, get out of building!"

Trapped as firefighters fought it in our hallway of building....fire started in 207 around corner, I'm in 206.  Eventually they escorted us outside.  Many outside, couldn't find my elderly mom for at least a half hour!  Finally, a neighbor told me where she was.

I posted a long version where I help moderate.  Spent 6 hours outside as they fought fire and then investigated it.

5 apartments in my wing demolished!  Wing destroyed by soot and wet rugs.  Red Cross came.

But praise God, mom and I are safe, have apartment still and Miss Kitty who hid is ok, too.

Praise the LORD!!!  Glad you and others are ok!

More to praise, thank God for...a few days ago our fire damaged wing (first thru third floors) lost electricity.  Long story short, the Dept of Water and Power made the management company get an electrician out here to check for short circuits in each apartment in our wing.

Also, the electrician  finally got the light on in front of our apt door which was burnt the day of the fire (I had been using a flashlight after dark).  With the hallway now lit, I discovered our wall (backs our dining area) was on fire!  Fire extended down about 4 feet!  Rug in adjacent hall is totally burned up...gone.

This fire happened about 5:30 a.m. so everyone was sleeping.  Again, thankful to God for protection!
