There was flame and smoke at our cabin in the Tahoe National Forest early this morning, and it wasn’t from the Incinolet burning off the remains of a burrito. An electrical fire in the wall upstairs resulted in about 2/3 of the cabin suffering major damage. The new part of the cabin didn’t burn, but I suspect the smoke damage is probably pretty bad.
The most important thing, though, is no one was injured. My step-niece and her husband unfortunately had to be the ones up there when it happened. Nothing like arriving late at night while it’s snowing, turning on the lights, smelling that distinct ozone odor, then watching in horror as smoke and flames start coming out of the walls.
