So last Friday night, I was sitting on the couch watching a movie at about 4 am (with the boyfriend). All of a sudden, there was a terrible BOOM and suddenly huge chunks of burning things were showering our way. Then again BOOM and another BOOM!

Three huge explosions in a row. I grabbed shoes and ran out as I could see flames very high in the sky... A place about a half a block away had flames shooting about 40 feet above the roof. I knew the place was in construction but WOW... I've never seen or felt anything like it.

Even emergency personnel arriving would get out and swear... Quite intense.

The sad fact though is that three more apartment blocks were badly damaged, so many people seem to now be homeless.

The place where the fire originated had burnt originally in August 2010 - quite curious.
