wtf man, every EVERY time i leave town for a few days, Detroit burns.
it happened when the Studebaker went down, it happened when the 9 Mile bridge got melted, it happened during the great blackout of 2004…and a couple others too.
the craaaaziest thing is where i went to in Colorado also had a wildfire up in the mountains when i was there. our plan was to do some hiking / mine exploring up in Left Hand Canyon…well, what do you know. that was all closed down due to the largest forest fire in Weld County history–7100 acres burning and 100+ homes gone. then i come home to find out about THIS?! wtf!! insane.
I would say two out of three were abandoned before the fire, and at least half of those were burnt once already before the fire.
The wind looked pretty vicious that night.
Of the houses that burned, how many would you say were already abandonded?
