Yesterday there was a massive fire in Houston. An apartment complex under construction caught fire and burned. Since it was under construction, no one was hurt. What makes this fire so upsetting to me is that it happened just a few hundred feet from where I worked (at AIG) for 20 years.

Wow, Joyce, that was huge. Did any other bldgs also catch fire, or were they able to contain it to the one structure?

We saw that on the news last night. The one worker was trapped on the upper floor and had to jump down to the next balcony. The firefighters were finally able to rescue him. Scary!

We saw that on the news last night! That's a huge fire but I'm glad so far no one has been hurt.

It was a luxury apartment project that was being built, but not yet occupied. There was a dramatic rescue of a worker. The fire was contained to the apartment structure, but it was just not far from several office buildings that I worked at before I retired. They don't know what started the fire.

Then today I heard that a woman I worked with for years died yesterday from cancer that wasn't diagnosed until three months ago, so she went fast. You never know how short life will be for you, so why not buy that Daily Deal?
