    Hope everyone is ok.  We live just off Sylvan, I heard the start of the call out, sounds huge.  Yikes.  Thanks WSB for always being there to answer my ‘what the heck is going on out there?!?’ Late night wondering when I hear something outside.

    Just got woken up out of a sound sleep by all the sirens (we’re about half a mile away). Thanks for being here to provide an explanation at any time of night when tired minds want to know what’s happening. I hope everyone who lives in that house is okay.

    Edit: just saw your last update. So glad the residents got out!
