    Had a bad Sunday nite at my house. Neighbors garage went up in flames set my house on fire. No injuries just lots of damage. I now have a blue tarp roof and walls guess that adds to the resale value??? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hFnCcgsDyfQ

    That wind was really blowing. Not the best circumstances for fighting fire. We wish you and your family the best on your recovery.

    I was watching the windmill go and was thinking the same thing.

    Glad no one got hurt, hopefully it won't take to long to get everything straightened out and your house repaired.

    That's the worst, I've worked on a few homes that were almost total losses because of adjacent house and garage fires. How much damage did your house sustain? I imagine the majority is smoke and water damage?

    Well, I feel for your situation and I hope you find a good restoration company and get your life back on track quickly and without too much headache.

    Thanks everyone. The fire department had a hell of a time with it. It could have been alot worse. They got here quick and called in mutual aid from lancaster and cheektowaga. Had no shortage of trucks and people. The hydrant is directly accross the street so they had lots of water. The wind was blowing at my south west corner so i got lots of damage their. But I also got the side of my garage, the pool, hot tub, and shed. The wind mill is in my back yard so my house is to the left their and when the guy walks down the street and stands next to the fire truck my house is than to the right. You can see my red gmc pick up in the driveway. Insurance says about $40-50k in damage to my place.

    Forgot to add it was 10 degrees out so it was an icy mess too.

    Sorry to hear about that, glad everyone is safe. My neighbors house caught fire a few years ago, definitely some scary stuff when it's that close.

    Glad you and yours are alright.

    Sorry to hear. In a case like that i'll assume the neighbors insurance covers your damages? If not i'd get a lawyer.

    sorry about your damages. that would be a bad one. cold, windy, and houses that close together.

    i guess they had enough crew.. omg, i've never seen that many FF's at one of our fires, even with 4-5 departments out.. lucky to get that many to respond

    Did not loose any equipment. only some homeowner stuff in the shed. Thanks everyone. How the insurance thing works is you put the claim thru your insurance and if they can find fault on the neighbor than they go after theirs. And so the fun starts.
