*Added pictures*The buildings were vacant*.
We were on our way to Schlotzsky’s and saw the smoke just ahead on the Interstate 10. Traffic slowed and we immediately saw why as we drove across the overpass. A massive fire! As we got closer we saw that it was a retirement home. The blue oval sign indicates the home and the lettering underneath states, “Under New Management…” Not likely, but I hope it was empty!
It appears to be nearly consumed and the roof completely caved in around the entire building. What appears to be a building next door is mostly engulfed in a new conflagration and is producing a tremendous amount of heat, felt all the way from the Interstate. There is a sign collapsed and half-burned which reads, “FOR SALE” and then a phone number listed.
