  • Oh no. I love that house!

  • That is a shame it is one of my favorites, doesn’t look like that big a fire, hopefully they were able to contain it quickly, but even small fire can cause a huge amount of damage, especially in a row house because the fire department is rightly more concerned about it spreading to other houses than minimizing the damage to the house.

  • That is a super pricey house. I believe it has an extensive roof deck with a BBQ up there.
    .
    He has a Calder mobile hanging from the ceiling in the living room. I hope he’s properly insured!

  • Did a burning piece of Garfield Terrace land on their roof?
