We heard sirens and then saw big and very high flames from a few blocks away. Quite quick burning it seems. Very sorry for the owners. Glad no one in the home nor responders hurt. Report here says the fire was extinguished in just over 20 minutes. I wonder if that is from when the 911 call was made, or from when they put water on it and it was extinguished. It went from full flames to none visible by us very quickly.

Besides no one hurt, one good thing is it is winter. The flames could have caught big trees on fire in the summer.
