Burned out

 
Posted by Picasa


I'm not sure when this happened, but it was a sad sight to see. One of the beautiful old houses located on College Avenue between FSU and downtown Tallahassee.

Lois, it looks to me like there was a fire in the upper portion of the Home. The roof is probably gone, too. It will be alot of work to repair, but it can be done. I am asumming that someone did live in there and it's not abandonded? On the second thought, maybe no one is there. Allot of over-growth. With some work, it looks like it could be a nice looking home.

Looks like a party got out of hand.

This is so sad! What a shame...
Sorry to hear about what happened to your brother's house, but I'm glad to know no one was hurt. We have never had tornados before but last winter and even in early spring they just happen! Not big tornados but they have made a lot of damage though. Now it's hot, I believe temperature will reach 30ºC today!

Oh my, what a shame - it looked like it was quite beautiful before the fire.

Those houses are really beautiful but fire can be even more scary in a wooden building.

Ah, that's terrible. I'm with Leia - perhaps it will be restored to its original glory!

That is a very sad sight indeed.

B SQUARED drove by in his Yugo, causing the house to self-immolate.

A very sad picture, Lois. It was a beautiful old house. I hope it can be repaired.

Oh, very sad. It looks like this was once a grand home. I can tell of it's lovliness even in spite of the damage. I love the porch too.

James said...

That's too bad. I hope no one was hurt.

Really sad to see. It looks like this was once a beautiful house and someone's home.
