No, alhamdullilah. However a portion of my state is on fire because it so dry, may Allah bless the families that are going through that.

Luckily never happened to me, but some of my friends house burnt down in college a few months ago. None of them were home, thankfully, but they literally lost everything.

Fire is way worse of a justifiable punishment for our actions, we have come a long way in our treachery


06/29/12 12:18 am

Our actions are far more abominable.

It's actually a good question: being consumed by water or fire? I would say water. And that's just for the hearts of men.


06/29/12 12:14 am

Well, I'm thinking there is a good chance America is the next modern day babylon, so eventually we will all be consumed by fire.

7 yrs ago on Valentines Day. Lost my mom and everything I owned, but the clothes on my back. Due to my father rigging a new dryer motor on a dryer they no longer made parts for. Didn't rebuild cause it just didn't feel right.

Imawench- Ty. Fondue had always been my fav as a kid as I thought it was a fun way to eat. I've never had it since.

Yes, we were taken out of the apartment by firemen when I was five. I still remember my pregnant mother coming down the ladder. My dads friend was smoking in bed in a neighboring apartment. Probably
explains why fire is one of my biggest fears.

No, but a friend just lost theirs to fire. It is a painful experience to witness let alone happen directly.

Ours was kind of threatened. A transformer exploded and we could easily see the flames from our house. But it didn't really have a chance of getting to us.

A few years ago the smoke from one the fire was so thick at the house we thought we'd have to leave just to be able to breathe, but the actual fire never got closer than three miles and was never a threat. There would not have been anything anyone could do about it - the terrain is much too steep.

All the people in the kitchen couldn't get out because the floor was so slippery from oil. Fire dept saved the rest of the house. Grandma and dad went to hospital

My 16th birthday, we had the whole family over. My dinner request was fondue. My dad was heating the oil on stove and began to pour it into the fondue bowl. A splash of hot oil hit his arm and he dropped the oil onto the counter top which was covered with water! Kitchen caught on fire and

Neighbors house burned down. Fire department had to keep a couple on our house to keep it from catching fire. Did a good job of saving our house. Not so much for the neighbors though.
