Just as the setting sun drops past the edge of the opposite hillside, the orange rays illuminate the trees in OlderSon's back yard. I saw the light from the window, and dashed outside with the camera. It didn't last long.... not even half a minute before the colours returned to normal.

A couple of weeks ago there was a distinct smell of smoke in the air. This is the result.

Thankfully, nobody was hurt, everyone got out in time. Two families have lost their home and the landlord has lost his investment. According to the Fire Marshal, the fire started on the front porch and probably smouldered all night, a case of careless disposal of a cigarette. So be careful, all you smokers..... make certain your cigarettes are out. Better still, don't smoke!
