Heres some pictures a friend of mine uploaded to her Myspace from last nights fire.

Most of them are small and they arent exactly in a timeline, sorry.



















































Sisters boyfriend is a volunteer firefighter, I heard his alarm going off about 1AM last night and the house was shaking as fast as that kid was trying to get out the door. Didnt think much of it, he usually comes back about 10 minutes later because they got called off. Well, he spent about 12 hours there, ended up pulling two people from one of the buildings.

Prayers out for the people who lost their homes. :(

Those are in Linden? Where at? I've never seen those ones before, I don't think.

Those look more like the apts in Fenton by the BW3's.

Yeah, its Fenton, sorry. Dont really know the boundries for those area's that well.

I just know my sisters boyfriend Justin Card's alarm call went off around 1am. I did not know there were two fires that night.

He was telling me that Arson was being considered because it started in one of the stairwell areas?

That had to be a rough night for you Mr. G.
Roger that.


I just listened to all of the audio, mr. hosejockey was upset he didn't have enough water or enough water pressure, but be assured he sent someone to find another hydrant!

What was the injury toll?

Is that Travis?

this audio is LONG. I am still listening to it.

so any idea on cause of fire and how many injuries?
Justin told me there were 3 injured, a child was suffering from some smoke inhalation but last he knew no one was dead. Everyone was accounted for.

He also said that arson was a consideration, because it started in one of the stairwells? I was half listening cause it was late last night when he was telling me.

no cause or orgin found released yet, state fire officials are the ones who investigate and they dont say much.
