Not our house, the one right next door.

No one was home, but we did have to smash in both doors to get the dog out.

Still coughing up streaks of black or gray crud. Note to self don't run in too a house when it's on fire.

Fire marshal is not 100% sure but it all points to a bad power strip.

House fires are awesome. Not only do you have to deal with all the burned crap and smoke damage but the several thousand gallons of water the fire dept. threw at it.

i could not live without a Dyson ball. If I didn't have it I don't think the Brazilian would clean my tenement.

You are a hero for saving the dog. I salute you, and your extreme level of testosterone production.

Glad everyone got out ok.

You should have just flipped on the Dyson Ball Vacuum, it would have sucked up all the smoke...I saw that in the commercial.

Well after days of coughing (so bad I was making myself vomit (last night) (blood this morning) and hacking), I went to the walk in clinic today.

Asthma is back (have not had an issue with it in 20+ years), walking pneumonia and bronchitis.

What a pain in the butt.
