Not so amusing

I just checked my email, and my mom emailed my brother and I to let us know a house near our farm burned down last night.

We were at the farm yesterday afternoon and in the early evening we heard lots of fire trucks tearing down -----Road . A house just across ----- off------- was completely engulfed with flames. It was amazing! The sky was black and as far away as the area close to Sheetz you could see it! [the distance of about 3 miles] The good news is no one inside were physically hurt.

and to allay my historian/preservationist's fears:
It seemed to be a new house nothing historical.

Please remember the poor family in your prayers.

yeah it was pretty bad. you could see the flames clearly from the end of wentz road so that was a little scary. I guess Dad said that everyone (a Dad and his 13 year old son) got out alright. we looked on google maps and it looks like it was a pretty big sort of new house with a pool and something else...
