Things got going pretty quick. This was before the fire department arrived.

This is outside of my window at work. Been here 28 years never seen fire plug being used.

Must be the season for it. Last weekend we went to Spokane to watch GW's oldest son play in a tennis tournament. I was awakened around 3:30 by nearby sirens but looked out and didn't see anything. When I went down to breakfast I saw that the restaurant next door had burned and firefighters were still trying to put the flames out. That was about 9:30 so they had been at it for 6 hours or so. First time I've ever watched a fire from 5 stories up. Puts a different perspective on things.
