Real question: does the fire company ask permission from families before posting this stuff? I know it's a public street, but part of me feels like showing pictures of a home on fire is tasteless.
Praying for the family as well as our 1st responders and firefighters. God-bless you and keep you all safe
Prayers For The Family
