Crazy Sunday

Findlay FireNot sure who caught all the craziness on Sunday, but in addition to downed trees, lost power, and lost cable, we had fires near Findlay Market and next to Grammer's.

The first picture is the Fire in Findlay shot from our upstairs Window. I have heard that a transformer blew. One neighbor says that he heard the loud noise. I did not notice it, but Danyne called my attention to it.

In the next picture you can see it spreading down the eaves of the building.

The Firefighters had to battle strong swirling winds, but thankfully did much better than the Bengals:

Later you can see a number of ladder trucks inspecting the various buildings around Findlay.

We also received a call from George down on Pueblo that Grammer's was in danger. It seems that a fire started in a neighboring building. I don't know the official word, but a friend says that they lost the roof to the rathskeller, and I would assume suffered some water damage.

Thanks to some wind-related pruning on our hillside, and some gusts of wind, I was able to get a few shots of the situation from the same window:

All in all a very busy day for Firefighters downtown...
