Loads more in my Factory Fire Set.

 

A fire broke out around Midnight in a building near our house. I was in bed reading when I heard a firetruck go past and then a couple of explosions.

 

The building was referred to as 'the old National Tile building' in this article from the local paper. I believe the building contained several different companies.

 

Adjacent houses were evacuated for a few hours. I don't know yet whether any of those houses were damaged or destroyed. The factory is a total loss though. It burned from one end to the other.

 

It's the same building that I used for this self portrait a while back.

 

I was really planning on going to bed 'early' tonight, too, cause I'd been up late the night before 'Flickering.'

 

Four Hours later, I'm off to catch a few 'Z's'
