    The house right next door to one of my rentals burned down today. The wife and adult son were away, but the old guy was at home. He and his dog escaped. House is a total loss.

    I don't know these people well, but he seems like a nice guy. I set up a GoFundMe page for them.

    If you can, I'm sure every little bit would help.

    Thanks.

    My rental is the ugly white one. Recently bought and currently renovating it.
    The heat cracked the windows on that side and melted a few things. The screen on the door is interesting.

    Sorry for their loss, but happy that everyone made it out.

    Well, the house is rebuilt and the family is moving in now.
    Unfortunately, I just now found out the husband died 3 weeks ago!
    He and I have become friends and chatted quite a bit on facebook. I was about to ask him how he was and when he'd be moving in. What a pity.
    I assumed he was much older than me - a generation at least. He looked nearly 70. Turns out he was only 50 - 2 years older than me! Kidney failure got him. What a shame. Dude had a hard life.
