    I agree, shrimpbait--let's ban fires. While we are at it--let's ban floods, murders, robberies, etc...

    I feel so powerful! Have a great weekend!

    but, you know, fire extinguishers can be a bit messy and it would then take water to clear the mess, but you can't water, soooo.... let's also request a ban on fire extinguishers. Oh, but if they go ahead and just ban fire then they won't have to worry about the ban on extinguishers. I could go on and on, but I have to leave now... this has been extremely entertaining to me today though.

    Shrimpbait---LOL That was my thought too! Must have been carrying pinestraw!
    I've been looking out my window this morning staring at the pinestraw. I think if I stare at it hard enough I just might be able to make it self-combust! I have my fire extinguisher next to me just in case....

    Was there pinestraw within 10 feet of the van?

    Yep it was a U-haul. Saw the engine compartment on fire with the family standing by.

    Hope no one lost anything, and blessed no one was hurt.

    God bless.

    It was indeed a U-Haul.

    10 to 1 it's a U-Haul. Those things are so old and unsafe.

    I just drove by that a little while ago. The cab looked like a complete loss, but the cargo area was mostly intact. Hope no one lost all their belongings.
