Our neighbor's house was on fire

Corey and I had just went to bed last night and I was reading a book when I heard the sirens. I heard them turn off and I assumed that they were where they needed to be. I then started hearing car doors shuting outside and I turned off my lamp and looked out my window. To my surprise there were lots of emergency vehicles outside and they were closing off streets. I woke up Corey and we decided to head outside to see what was happening. We had heard the police talking that everyone was ok and out of the house. I felt so bad for them and would never hope that for anyone. We decided to come back into the house and head to bed because it was pretty late to start with and it was getting really cold outside. Once we were back in the house I told Corey that I think we should wake up Ryan, I just knew that he would love to see all the fire trucks, ambulances and police cars with their lights on. I know that this was a terrible thing that happened however I really wanted Ryan to see the hoses hooked up with the water coming out and just to see everything. He did like looking at the trucks however he was tired and went back to bed after 15 minutes.
I am not sure how much damage was done to the inside of the house however the family was able to return back home that same night. The fire department did put a big hole in the side of their house and now it is covered with black plastic.

Ryan's adoption pics are great. I just saw your birthday & fire stuff. I must not have gone far enough before.
