Burnt Cabin

Here are photos that Tom took this weekend helping my father clean up the debris after the fire at the cabin.  Compare these photos to those of the previous slideshow to see what it looked like before the fire came through.  The first photo is the start of the fire at the bottom of the mountain on the way up to the cabin.

The only things that survived at the cabin were the swing and the small windmill.



This is a photo of the foundation of the cabin.  It is weakened by the heat and not usable again.

This is what is left of the wood stove and pipe.


Here is the remains of a small shed near the storage containers.

This is the inside of one of the containers.  This is where my father kept his motorcycles, quads and snowmobiles.

This is the molten aluminum coming out of the container.

Here is a view of the remains of the quads, motorcycles and snowmobiles pulled up to where the cabin was to get ready for disposal.

This is the view of the front of what was the cabin with the pile of rubble.  The fire pit survived.  The shed that help the firewood is destroyed but barely standing.



This is the Christmas tree.  The tree guys who came by today said it will die.

And this is the corner of Robbins and Snag Canyon Roads.  This is in the heart of the fire.  It is about 1/4 mile from my father’s cabin.

    To see how the fire incinerated what was in the storage units is jaw-dropping. I don’t know how the firemen do what they do….
