Thank you, thank you to our wonderful Woodside Fire District firemen! Your prompt response and effective efforts prevented this fire from destroying additional properties in our community. We owe you, as always, our most sincere thanks and gratitude. Additionally, the 1st Chili Cookoff BBQ at Runnymede on Sunday was delightful!

Yes, many thanks to the Firemen for their quick action!

Given the time (around 8.40pm Friday 23rd September 2011), might they look for some space debris or fragment from the UAR Satellite? It may have been the cause. Just a thought.

I am so sorry to read this bad news. It's relief that no one is injured, but wow, it's a loss of much for the owners.

Owners, if you read this, I hope that you all are getting the support that you need from loved ones - & the insurance company!!!

Best wishes for better times coming your way swiftly.
