House on fire

A house is on fire in our neighborhood a few houses from mine. I was a looky-lou.

They blocked off the street. Two hook-and-ladders, three ambulances, two police cars, and a fire marshal SUV. I'd take pictures, but that's pretty ghoulish. There's no leaping flames or anything dramatic, just a little smoke, and given the attitude of the people around the house, I think everyone is safe and they are doing some post-fire inspecting. I suspect someone saw a fire, got everyone out, called fire department, and an insurance company got a phone call.

They also must still have power, because the garish Christmas light decor in their front yard, including a huge row of LED candy canes, was still lit.
