    It was my house. It was old and in need of repair. We built a new one and had a controlled burn for the old one. Our kids grew up in this old house and we celebrated the burning of a house and the memories we all had. It was now a house and not a home.

    That awkward moment when you’re scrolling through the pics and your pastor and his family show up.

    It’s almost like they were posing for a family portrait in front of a green screen, and the photographers accidently put in a “Only You Can Stop Forest Fires” PSA photo.

    Where’s the marshmallows?

  21. Mindy says:

    what happened to the comment from the poster that explained it? It was up yesterday and clearly stated that this was a controlled burn by the fire department and they just decided to pose in front of it.

      • S says:

        Some of the comments for the burning photo got shoved over to the “The Chewies” photo… just noticed & thought I’d let you know.

      • Ingrid says:

          Before some screams fake / staged / or photo shopped, let me tell this.
          I had a coworker who was on the town volunteer fire company, he and his family wanted to replace their old home with a new one. He went through the proper paperwork, and the day it came through he said to his wife when she got home ” Honey we are burning the house today”
          He and his crew did a control burn for the practice then cleaned up the site and put a new home in its place. I bet they wish they had posed a family portrait like this one.

    WTF!? No really, WTF!?!?! What is the story behind this one? Hey kids, the house is on fire! Everybody pose, last time we’ll ever get the house in a photo!

    We’ll miss you, Detroit….no, not really.
