The charred remains of a once sturdy house arrest my attention on my everyday commute. It was such a beautiful home but what is left now is just a shell, covered in ashes.
The story of what happened is almost unbelievable. Just around the corner from where this home is, there is a fire station. Not even a half-mile distance separates a home that nearly burned to the ground and the place that is tasked with putting out fires. A friend of mine relayed to me that he drove by the house on fire and then passed the fire station. The inactivity at the station was alarming. And the reason why there was no response from this station was because as close as this home was, it was out of their jurisdiction.
