I post the story too, but I liked the photo more. Some of the comments are funny too.
Blaze Destroys 2 Homes Along Chesapeake
Flames melt siding off houses across street
Updated 8:20 AM EST, Mon, Dec 8, 2008
ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Firefighters contained a five-alarm fire along the Chesapeake Bay early Monday morning that destroyed two homes and damaged another to the point it's unlivable.
The three shoreline community houses on Shore Drive in Bay Ridge were next to one another. Matthew Tobia, the battalion chief for Anne Arundel County Fire Department, says 100 firefighters were on scene.
Tobia said the flames melted the siding off three houses across the street, but firefighters were able to save those homes. Several hoses also burned. Fire crews were still dousing hot spots as of 2:30 a.m., dealing with icy streets and strong winds.
Two firefighters were treated for minor injuries from the blaze, which started around 10:30 p.m. No one else was hurt.
A family of four has been displaced, and a man living in the second destroyed home is also displaced. No one was present in the third home.
Officials don't yet know how the fire started and don't plan to begin investigating until daylight.
They estimate about $2 million in damage.

Live There 23 minutes ago As usual, NBC4 does not have the facts straight. The fire was in Oyster Harbour- Not Bay Ridge.
Pachacutec Today at 7:52 AM It's sad when these things happen, but thankfully no one was seriously hurt, and that's what's most important.
Waterlover Today at 7:15 AM Anyone have addresses of property involved? This is a real loss to BayRidge when homes are destroyed by fire. We have rented there and love the beauty and peaceful community. So sorry to hear this on the morning news.
Baygoer Today at 6:53 AM Any address if the fire locations would be helpful to homeowners not on the scene. Anyone know?
