Big Fire Behind our House



There is a small old wooden bridge about 5 houses up the street and behind our house. It gives people access to about 80 homes which we call "The Point". About 4:30 this afternoon there was a huge fire it appears that someone may have set a fire and the bridge was up in flames in a matter of minutes. 
By the time I got there most of the flames were out, but fire and police will be here investigating overnight.

Deb, that's the kind of excitement you don't need - so long as no one was hurt, that's the main thing.

I saw the smoke when I left work last night. How do you get off 'the Point' without the bridge?

It's beyond me why people do such things...if someone set that fire. Thankfully no one was hurt.
Take care,
Karen

How awful, sounds like kids fooling with matches. They'll likely rebuild the bridge won't they?
