After about 2 days, it looks like things are finally done. My friend’s home did not get destroyed, but there is clean water damage in one of the rooms. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. There were actually 2 other fires in the area about one day after this big one happened. Some are saying that they might be related.
I tried to contact my friend, but I got voicemail. Maybe we’ll touch base later in the week. I’ll keep you posted.
