My parents live on Fern Garden, which is the street after Brook Shore and their house is right behind the house that caught fire. The firemen are still there walking through the woods behind my parents' fence. My mom said it was the whole house that caught fire. She and my brother heard it start to collapse and then saw it fully collapse after they ran outside after hearing sirens getting closer. KWPlanner did it start in the garage and spread to the house?
EllieB, your folks likely saw/heard the garage on fire. It did not spread to the house; HFD had the flames out within 20 min of arriving. They were likely walking back in the reserve to make sure none of the embers flew back there & start anything else. Rest assured, the house is still in one piece.
