Thank God that no one was injured. My heartfelt prayers go out to these neighbors of mine who are displaced because of this. The amount of fire trucks and police made it seem like armageddon when they came down Morning View! May these affected families get expeditious repairmen so they can spend Chritmas in their homes.

Hi Susan, we were waiting for the official information from the fire department to post an update and I received it while I was away during the holiday. A link to the news release was posted below by another user and we'll have an aggregated piece from that up shortly. Thanks!
