Welcome home! Although what a welcome. Glad no one was hurt, but the owner of that unit is going to come home to a nasty surprise.

Welcome back. I always worry I'll come back from vacation to find my place burned down or looted. It makes a good surprise when it's not.

I'm trying to imagine you 'dashing upstairs' after being ogled by your neighbours. -- Welcome back globetrotters.

Yikes! Not something you want to see your first night back. Looking forward to hearing about your trip.

considering how terrible it could have been, and glad it wasn't your place, it could have been much worse!

I am so glad it was not your house, but feel so sad for the tragedy of the family that lost everything! We got back and it was far less eventful!! Get some rest and then tell us about your trip.

I'm relieved that nobody was hurt. And that it was "just' a fire. At first I was afraid the police were at your door because of something you did going through customs!

Oh I'm glad it wasn't your town home. Your neighborhood is so beautiful, but yours has all of that irreplaceable art in it. Oh my gosh, yes that would have been horrible.

That's making the news for all of the wrong reasons, and i am so sorry that person lost his/her home.

Oh, wow. That place looks trashed. Glad it wasn't your place and that everyone got out o.k. Once again, welcome home.

oh my gosh- how scary for the neighborhood- good thing it was contained so quickly so no one got hurt and the fire did not go any further. Looking forward to your stories and Welcome Home!

That really is a great finale to a trip. It's all you need when you come home and you're exhausted.
By: red on June 8, 2015
scary, even if no one was hurt. I'd hate to be returning home to this. So not a good way to make the news. Glad you are both safe though, and I hope your hearing comes back soon.

OMG - that looks awful. And now your worst nightmare is coming true for that poor neighbor who's in Seattle. Well, thank heaven it wasn't your house. And I bet Mrs. C was just jealous of all the neighbors ogling you - the entryway underwear model. ;)

Goodness what terrible welcome back home. Just thank goodness it wasn't any closer to your house. Looking forward to your adventures.

When I was in high school the big two story house at the end of our short private road went up in flames. the owners were not home but the little dog was trapped inside. four alarm fire. I'll never forget the sight of that house totally engulfed in flames towering high into the sky.

I used to wake up if a bug hit the window, but I can sleep through almost anything these days. Glad no one was hurt and I look forward to hearing more about the trip!
By: Katy Anders on June 9, 2015
I'm glad you're home but that is too much excitement of the wrong king! Waiting to see those trip pictures, Stephen! I hope it was fabulous.

Welcome home! I have that same fear every time we come home from out of town. And that's with knowing that our neighbor would call us if something happened! so glad no one was hurt.
By: The Bug on June 9, 2015
I am glad you-all made it back safe and relatively sound. I would be shocked to find that the fire across the street was not arson.
By: Jerry E. Beuterbaugh on June 9, 2015
Welcome home, weary traveler! Although I feel badly for your neighbors.
By: Al Penwasser on June 9, 2015
Good to have you back, but what an adventure................ Glad all were okay and I hope you and Mrs C have recovered from your travels!
By: John on June 9, 2015
Welcome home, and glad the nasty surprise was not YOUR nasty surprise. Uhg. I have the same thoughts when I come home after being gone, always look to see if our house is still there once I turn the corner into our street.

Welcome back. Glad no-one was hurt, and I'm glad I'm not the only one who suffers that kind of anxiety when returning home after a trip. I always breathe a sigh of relief to find my house still standing. Irrational, but there it is.

What a frightening moment, alerting old memories too. Sorry to see the damage but glad there was no injury and that you are back at the keyboard and home.
By: Tom Cochrun on June 9, 2015
Wow. I'm also so glad no one was hurt. How awful! But, really?... "What is it with women and firemen?" The question really is "What is it with firemen?!?"

You sure didn't inspire me to take a trip, what with colds, jetlag, delays, disasters awaiting one at home (well, almost). I know how you do it. Peggy would probably go with you, but I'll stay right here, thank you very much. Glad you're at least alive.

Now that's some kind of homecoming! Thank god no one was hurt. The homeowner is in for a surprise when they arrive home. P.S. Welcome back!!!
By: Bouncin Barb on June 10, 2015
Oh boy what a welcome home! Poor person who is going to arrive home to that. Now I need to go and check my garage.
By: LL Cool Joe on June 11, 2015
What a lengthy trip back only to endure the fire! I'm glad no one was hurt.
