Flush 'em out, TN

We went out today and took a few pics of the fires out there....this is the first little building on the right as you approach (the one someone restored last year - also where the big fire started last year when workers were burning brush next to it).
Is there some way to post all the pics in one thread?

Why don't they just bulldoze that rundown old place? It's too far gone to be restored and all it is now is a place for vandals to set fires.

Good pictures, thank you. They are the first I've seen of this new fire damage. It's a damned shame, the area was coming along nicely.

Just curious what you mean by 'coming along nicely'?

The first couple of pics are of the building that was being 'refurbished' last year when the workers set the place on fire. That fire burnt for 2 weeks i think. Maybe it was some payback?

Since I have lived here a major fire gets started (and arson is suspected) on the mountains not far from where I live every 2 years.

But other than the 'refurbishing' mentioned that led to more destruction than fixing, I really haven't seen anything that resembles improvement. We don't have cell phone coverage, the mail delivery is extremely poor, phone lines will support 24K tops for dialups because they are in such poor condition. High speed isn't even a thought except by poor latency satellite. Basically its the bowels of the country.
