It was very sad witnessing the fire destroyed few businesses and suites on West Broadway & MacDonald. This is all because the tenant upstairs lit a candle while meditating in the other room?!? Lol….! Another reason never to leave a lit candle unattended.
Just finishing up chatting with my two friends at cobs bakery after my volunteer for bread pick up. It was maybe about 7:18pm, a woman knocked the door because at this time cobs is already closed. She was screaming and telling us to get out the store because there is a fire next door!!!!!!! The word “fire” causes the three of us to panicked! I pick up my keys and bags and the two ladies followed suit with there personal belongings. The two left for home and I stayed behind to watch the whole incident. Anyway, its best to show you the events unfolded.Taken from my smart phone.
