We drove past my back-yard neighbor's house, and saw her in the driveway with a couple of other people. About 30 minutes later we heard a siren not far away. Carol happened to look out across our back yard and saw this:
Fire trucks and other emergency vehicles were already arriving, so there was nothing we could do to help. Once I determined that, I grabbed the camera.
At one point, a man who had been living there ran across the back yard calling the name of the lady who was the home owner, yelling for her to get out.
I know these images look repetitive, but they are taken from my backyard across the fence to the neighbor's house. The time between them was about 3-4 minutes each.
Through the dense smoke you can see the Victoria Fire Department doing their best to put out the flames. Below one of the firemen seems to be ginving his evaluation of the event.
An altogether bad scene. We've heard from other neighbors that they saw someone being taken out of a window, put on a stretcher, and covered up. We assume that was our neighbor.
More information and possibly pictures (I took 70) tomorrow.
What a horrible situation!
