So, on Friday, Ryan and I were driving back to PA when our realtor called. He asked if we had watched the news and we said “Yes.” Then he asked if we saw our house and we said, “No.” Then he said, well apparently it burnt down last night and I think we should rescind your offer. With that I told him to repeat what he just told me so that Ryan could hear it. And what do you think Ryan’s reaction was? LAUGHTER! He didn't know what to do besides laugh... I was all concerned; is everyone ok, were other homes burnt as well, etc.? In the end, we believe it was a sign from God telling us that we should be buying a house in Virginia right now, at least not that house.
As it turns out, no other houses were significantly damanged and everyone escaped, including the dog, safely.
Here is what we found on the internet:
Initial Article that we read: http://www.wavy.com/dpp/news/local_news/smoking-blamed-for-sparking-condo-fire
The cause of the fire was "improperly discarded smoking materials," but it was later declared as arson. Desperate times lead people to do desperate things; it’s sad.
Future home…rest in peace.
I'll be living with my parents for the summer while Ryan is deployed. Saving money!
