    Neighbor

    My neighbor's house burned down a lot when we were kids. I actually saw the lightening strike once when I was about 6. I never figured out what was wrong with the house, but it would periodically get stuck with lightening, and I would just be so glad it wasn't my house. Maybe...

    My friend's family lost their home to what they think was caused by a malfunction in the electrical wires. The fire took at most 12 minutes for the 2nd floor to collapse into the first, and about 30 minutes for the whole house to be engulfed in flames. They lost everything...
