Shed Fire by MaeBelle

Inspired by the roaring flames
Our shed burned on Dec.11/07 Wow,was it HOT! and only 15 ft ftom the cabin and 3 ft from the woodshed, With God’s help we managed to keep it contained to the shed, Just the two of us, what could have been a tradgedy was turned into a blessing, Photos were taken while I was taking a break and trying to catch my breath. We worked very hard for about 4 or 5 hours, shoveling snow onto the flames and the other buildings to keep them wet.
I can work with it now and not get burned!!
