    OMG, glad you were in time, any idea how it started?

    We have had a lot of forest fires in our area, 16 in our county last Sunday, should be better today since rain is on the way.

    Glad to hear that you saved everyone and everything! I'm always smelling smoke and so far it has been my neighbors wood stove, I hope that it will always be that!

    It must be the season my brother in law's fathers barn caught on fire Friday. But it was caused from his l0 yr old S-10 truck. Alot of smoke damage but no structual damage they were very lucky. Mainly because the fuel tanks for the farm equipment are right next to this barn.
    They said something in the engine shorted out that's how the fire started.:thun

    Glad everyone and everything is okay!
