    No-one hurt, but give me a bungalow any day.

    "The civil defence came really quickly and they have said there were no casualties, everybody was told to evacuate in a timely manner and we think everybody is OK."

      I saw the video on that yesterday. At least the firefighters somehow managed to get it out and I think everyone was safe. Watching that was frightening.

      A single family home with some good space between mine and the others would suit me. Here, the homes are only 15 feet apart on my street, and when the neighbor's home burned with just one other house in between us, I was very happy to see how many different fire companies responded. The whole home was a total loss and the ones on either side had damage.

      To make matters worse, I could probably easily bat a ball into the forested land behind us. Fortunately, we normally get enough rain to keep everything nice and green there without problems.
