Default Price Family got a BIG Christmas present today

Well you always think it happens to someone else but we had a very close call this am at our house.

Someone rang our door bell and my son saw someone getting our water hose, I went out the door to white smoke from the side of our house.

One of my neighbors, an off duty Deputy Sheriff, was coming down the street and saw our trash cans on fire which are right beside our garage. He
acted quickly and by the time he found the hose and got around to the side of the house the trash cans were fully involved and the side of the house was burning. By the time
I got our there he had most of the fire out and his wife had already called the local volunteer fire department, which I am a board member of.

I would like to thank Officer Mark Gregory and his wife for saving our Christmas, the firemen said that 2-3 more minutes and our house would have been fully involved.

I think what started the fire was ME, I was busy frying a turkey and letting my labs run around the back yard when I went to look in my truck for a receipt for my father in law so he could exchange a
non working gift. While rambling through the console I found an old check stub with my ss# on it and since I did not have my shredder I thought I would just burn the check stub. Well in the mean time
my one of my labs thought it was time to run through the streets and I went after him. I thought I had the piece of paper extinguished.

It took about an hour or more for that to ignite the trash. It completely burned 2 trash cans and melted the siding and charred the wood on the side of the house. No structural damage on anything
major but if our neighbor would not have come along it would have been in the attic of the house and they told me when fire hits those areas it is catastrophic.

The Lord and our neighbors took care of us on this special day and we are very thankful

Living and having a house that isn't burned down is the biggest gifts of all.......say another prayer Mr. Price, the big guy upstairs was keeping an eye out for you and yours.....as was your neighbor.

You are very lucky!

I would like to remind everyone to check their exterior lighting in the spring as birds have a tendancy to build nests in them. I had one build a nest in a light that was under my porch roof and about 5:00, just before I was going to shower, I heard a POUNDING at my front door. It was my neighbor across the street. I opened the door and found the light on fire and was just about to light the soffit. Fortunately, I had a fire extinguisher in my kitchen and was able to put it out quickly. 2 minutes later and it would have been a different story!
