What Would You Grab - Part Two

Less than a week ago, I posted a story titled, "What Would You Grab?", after a
train passed and sparked a fire that threatened
our apartment complex.

Well, it happened again.

I was on the sofa. A train from the same company went by. I joked, “Look, Gin! It’s the fire starter!”

The train went by and there were the flames.

This time they were on the other side of the tracks from us. We went out on the balcony
and saw flames as far as we could see in both directions.

One guy across the tracks has a bunch of junk cars and an old boat. The boat went up in flames.

The train started a fire a five miles long.

One of the videos I took was on the local news.

Ginny was interviewed on our balcony and was on the news that night as well.

Here’s the two videos I took, the news report and a picture.

Here's the news on the fire. It has my video and my wife’s interview from our balcony.
Ginny is the first person the newscaster
interviewed. She's brunette and has a southern accent.

There are other videos as well.

Three mobile homes were lost and two firemen hurt
