Last night the building I used to work in burned down. I haven’t worked there since before Christmas, but it seems the company I worked for has lost its office – most likely due to water and smoke damage.
Coincidentally, I happened to be in town (I haven’t lived there since before Christmas too, another coincidence?) last night, playing a gig at a pub only a few doors down from the fire. I saw the fire trucks speed by while we were on stage, and smelled the smoke, but afterward we couldn’t get close enough to see what was going on because of all the fire trucks and police.
