It would be interesting to see the inside of that breaker panel in the last pic, to see how many tripped or if there was more "fine workmanship" in it too.

I'll bet that SER (SEU? SBC? BVD? RSVP?) cable put on quite a lightshow!!


Stupid should be painful.

Jeepers. You don't often see that much "badness" all in one place.

As they might say in Texas: "It needed burnin'."

Demolition by natural selection?


There are 10 types of people. Those who know binary, and those who don't.

The F.D Should have just let it burn... would have done the homeowner a BIG favour.

Nah, then he would have rebuilt his house, then it would have collapsed on him during it's next fire.
