  • fire is a beast. ive known people to store barrels of petrol for use. anything is possible. a home is prime opportunity for fuel sources ie fabrics wood. we made a camp fire stacked on our property and when the oxygen hit underneath it went from 8ft high to 20 plus in seconds.

  • This is my parents home and I can assure you it’s not arson. It was a 70 year old house that had a lot of pine and cedar in it. My parents lost everything except the clothes on their backs. I’m just glad mom was able to get dad in his wheelchair and still get out in time.

  • I got a video of it. Those flames had to be at least 40 ft high, and we just got a whole week of rain & a near flood. EVERYTHING was still wet. The way those flames were rolling & kept growing so quickly, there’s no logical possibility, given the environmental conditions, of a fire neither A) becoming an out of control bonfire, nor B) started as an ark or even an arked explosion. I’ve lived in Masaryktown WAY too long, and I absolutely suspected arson from the first sight of the 200000 fireteucks.
