The good news: the fire is not in one of my HOA's condos.
The bad news: it's an apartment fire. Austin has had several bad fires in just the past few months. I hope this one is not that way.
Also, I was not the only one outside in my pajamas trying to see what was going on. I was, however, the only one wearing pjs while walking a dachshund. The sirens have quieted but the helicopter is still buzzing around. It must be from one of the news stations because I can't imagine the police would need to do that. In fact, does Austin even have a helicopter? I must google.
