    Note to self.. when building new home… build garage separate from home.
    Praying for this family. Just feel blessed that everyone got out safely.

    That is terrible…i can’t imagine losing everything like that in a fire. Yes there’s insurance but so many things are hard or impossible to replace. Im curious if the vehicle that started the fire was an electric car. They are notorious for this.

    Yea I think I was one of the first to see it, no one was hurt neither was the dog, I was driving home from school when I saw the smoke and fire in the garage and no one outside I was about to call 911 but then everyone came running out and the fireman arrived a few min later

    Glad no one is hurt as far as we know. That is atleast a $400k house that was fully involved before the FD arrived. At some point, new construction houses should have home fire sprinkler systems required. This would save lives and potentially salvage the house. Insurance rates will skyrocket if not done.

    I am sincerely praying for these people. I had a house fire in 2021, and lost everything in eight minutes. The emotional Trama was like nothing I had ever been through.
