Um, do you smell smoke?

This was the house across the street from mine on an early hot August afternoon. It was in full flame as firemen began to arrive and try to knock it down. The downwind neighbor took a few photos as the flames roared.. then quickly moved his two cars a safe distance away. I arrived about 20 minutes later, parking and walking quickly as I dodged around ambulances, police and many fire trucks, not knowing what house was on fire! I broke free of the fire-fighting equipment and saw it was NOT my house but a neighbor 2-doors down, across the street. She DID smell smoke, grabbed her purse, her phone, the dog and car keys and drove her car from the smoldering garage. She was OUT, safe and uninjured
