pic1 -- had this fire made it through the steel door the entire house would have been lost -- the door held but was extremely hot for many hours after the fire department was able to extinguish the fire

pics 2 & 3 -- the master bedroom and closet sit above pic1 -- as you can see that fire was working up the wall -- 5 minutes more and it would have all went -- luckily the gas hot water heater and furnace did not explode which are along that wall in the garage area -- the bike was hanging right above these objects

pic 4 -- stairway going up to the second level

wishing you all a very special memorial holiday and hope you all are able to stay out of harms way

    Thank you Epson. I am so sorry you have to go through this. Thank goodness for a decent insurance company. As bad ad it seems it could be worse. At least you are okay and Abby didn't get hurt. Happy Memorial Day to you!

    thanks nldionne -- yes had that fire occurred at 4am rather than 4pm -- i am sure we would have all died a terrible death -- we were very very lucky -- when i opened that steel door to reach around the corner to pop the garage door opener -- is was like a black devil of smoke and gases was just waiting to come into the house -- tried twice after i caught my breathe -- but by that time the fire had consumed the electrical panel and destroyed all power -- so all i could do was run back outside and continue to hose water onto the backside of the house as ted continued to work on the front -- as we waited for the fire department to arrive -- another blessing was a train was not across the tracks to block the entry to this gated community we live in as there is only one entrance into steamboat landing -- luckily there was no wind and it had been raining all week -- to the fire did not jump to the surrounding homes -- as i always say -- my number was not up and so have many many more days to live is this wonderful planet called earth

    thanks charlie, leah and all members for the kind thoughts -- everything is progressing nicely -- hartford insurance has just been so professional and super in making you feel they are working for you and truly sorry for your loss

    it is a learning experience -- with smoke damage they allow you to keep an item that is not made of plastic but the plastic attachments are inventoried out -- so i now have many sets of glass pyrex mixing bowls with no lids and several vacuum cleaners with no attachments -- oh well such is life -- as they say don't sweat the small stuff and all things are small and boy does a fire ever bring that back home -- heck of a way to downsize!!!!

    take care and hugs to leah

    thanks lee and sean for the loves and comments -- i am hoping the last comments left by me on the huffy bike posting will be of use to anyone having a tv box which converts an analogue signal to digital -- as this is believed what caused the fire -- again we were so lucky it occurred at 4pm rather than 4am as we would not have had a chance to escape from the house -- since the electrical short caused all power to be lost immediately -- causing the phones and doors to lock up

    have a great weekend
