After having some good Mexican food in Othello, we headed back to the Stake Center this evening for our Stake Missionary Correlation Meeting at 8:00. As we approached the neighborhood where the church is, we saw smoke. As we got closer, we saw the tragedy. A home was on fire!Flames were just beginning to lap up on the roof top.After about 5 min the local police were there. After about 15 min the first local volunteer firefighters came. By then, the flames had spread across the rooftop.One hose was not enough to put out the fire. In time 2 more trucks came to help.It was so sad to stand and watch, helpless.By the time most of the fire was under control, the roof was gone and the home was filled with water. We walked over to the church for our meeting, feeling sad for the family who will return to this tragedy.
