...Across the street, the other night...

There were multiple sirens, which certainly got our attention!

They quickly sent a crew in with a hose connected to the truck, and also sent a truck around to the back of the building

This was the result, a plume of smoke and steam coming from behind the building...

The hose-draining cleanup, with the Fire Investigation team's van in the foreground.

Apparently no one seemed to be injured, but the next morning we checked the back of the building, and found:

You can see the black char marks on the window frame from where the burnt mattress had been pushed out.

Not much left here. Moral of the story: Always use your good linen, you never know who's going to see it!
