Keota Fire

At 1:15 am the siren went off calling all emergency workers. The whole inside of our house was lit orange, the fire was right across the street from our home. The house that burnt down had been standing empty for some time now, and was in the process of being torn down, but it was a very large old home. The owner lived next door in a metal frame building, there was serious damage there as well.
