Missed CVS trip - Downtown tragedy

I didn't make it to CVS today because we ran into an unexpected fire in our downtown area.
This was the scene at a local furniture store in South Lansing this afternoon.

Matt had just returned from a camping trip and had his camera in the car so he was able to snap a few photos of the chaos. If you're interested you can read the article HERE

Our fire fighters really are amazing. Over 45 fire fighters were helping to battle the blaze with 8 fire trucks responding. They are one profession that needs to be paid more... much much more.

Of course the physical damage is horrible but my Human Resource mind immediately turns to all the employees who now have no where to work on Monday. In an already horrible economy (especially in Michigan and Lansing) these people have now lost the income they need to feed and clothe their families.
