Two days ago, I heard fire engines running down Main Street, but that's not uncommon inasmuch as we're only two blocks north of Main. Then we heard more of them. And then some more. Lisa came in and said, "There's a house on fire across the street!"

It would be tragic enough under the circumstances, but it turned out to be worse than just property damage. Lisa, talking to the person who lives in the yellow house seen in some of these photos, learned that an older woman who lived in the burned cottage had been pulled from the flames with severe third-degree burns. Comments on Facebook say that it was the woman's son and another passerby who pulled her out, but I do not have independent knowledge on that.

Comments on Facebook say that an oxygen cylinder exploded; however, I know nothing more about the cause of the fire, and FB comments are often worth what you pay for them. I may be able to learn more at the next fire board meeting.
