BREAKING NEWS: Silver Terrace Fire
Fire broke out this afternoon on Bridgeview Dr in Silver Terrace. A resident who lives nearby said that at first she thought it to be a brush fire on the hill, but when she saw thick black smoke rising up, she realized it was a neighbor's house that was ablaze. Fire crews have reportedly suppressed the fire, but Bridgeview Dr is still closed as paramedics attend to those in the home who may have been injured.
Thank you to friends who called and emailed to alert me to the fire and to check to make sure that my Silver Terrace home was OK. In turn, I was able to alert neighbors using a great hyper-local website called Nextdoor.
