There used to be a restaurant located next to me. It was about 2:20 am on February 13th, 2007 when I received a call from the local police. They were investigating some smoke and were not sure if it was the shop or the restaurant next door. We looked around and determined that it must be in the restaurant.
Just a couple of hours earlier, the fire department had just finished up their annual (maybe late Christmas) party. The cause of the fire has never really been determined.
I took pictures that night and then again a couple of days later after the Investigators were done. Looking around for other things today, I came across one of the disks with some of the images. So, this is what it looked like and also what it looked like after the fire. The icicles are from the water hoses. The temperature was about 8 below the night of the fire and remained very cold for several days after.
