    oh wait, maybe this was a different one than i heard on the radio? they made it sound like it was a house, not an apartment. jeez, i hope it's the same story. i'd hate to think two families of 7 were burned out of their homes this weekend. :( :( :(

    Heard on the radio today that this house, a total loss, was burned down as a result of kids inside playing with lighters :(
