Carvers Fire








a fire started earlier at the Carvers Depot , ( builders merchant )







considering the amount of wood that  is kept   was stored there,
it will take a while to put out.




by the way,, this is the art building you can see from my back door.



at the time of posting, the wind is blowing away from the hoards of spectators.

no casualties.
