Default 50 years worth up in flames .

Sister called me this morning about 5am . Told me there was a fire at our dads house . Was very lucky it was just his sheds . He lost 50+ years worth of tool , fishing and hunting stuff . 1000ís of dollars on golf clubs . A brand new scag zero turn , small 25 hp tractor , 4wheeler,a few generators . Kawasaki mule . Pretty much any kind of wood working tools you could imagine. 2 18ft trailer loads of milled cedar and oak lumber . Lots of stuff that canít be replaced . Was my grandfather stuff .
Very lucky it didnít get to the house . Someone of the vinyl on the soffits of the house is melted . Heck some mini blinds inside the house are melted . Dad was up about 3 watching tv and heard a loud bang . Thought it was me dropping a barrel of on my way home from work . Then he heard it 3 more time . He went out back to see what was going on and thatís when he see the sheds up in flames . What he wax hearing was either propane tanks blowing up or spray cans . Itís more of a shop then a shed was 120x30 . All wood framed . Burned up pretty fast with all the dried lumber inside . This is the only pics I have as of now .

Dangit that's horrible. Prayers sent. I've been through that before except the fire took absolutely everything that I owned. I hate to see it happen to anyone.

It’s a shame to lose possessions but they don’t really matter when it comes to the blessing that no one was hurt or killed.

I know the building was insured. He is waiting on the insurance adjustment to show up . Have a feeling they are going to screw him on contents .

Sorry to hear that man. I've been through a house fire. It's a horrible helpless feeling.

I hope everything was insured. The worst part when making the loss list is all the stuff you/he forget about until you are searching the rubble.

Same here, dads shop burnt. Lost everything he had acquired tool wise plus everything from mine and my siblings youth. Sucks but grateful nobody was hurt.
