    All the sirens sure woke us and our pup up – he howled for a good 10 minutes with the continuous stream of emergency vehicles heading to the fire scene – joined right in to the joyful choir – hope everyone is ok and they eventually determine the cause.

    Once they make a ruling as “undetermined” do they bother reviewing any additional evidence?
    Has to be frustrating for the homeowners asking “Why?!”

Sorry, comment time is over.
