Stone!
You really mean your house actually was on fire today and it burned down?? That is terrible!!
It looks bad at the photo. Not too much damage I hope. Is it salvageable and insured I hope?
And I hope that your stuff and equipment isn't damaged too much.

It's too bad you're on the other side of the big ocean, otherwise I would drive over and help you rebuild the place.
I hope you and your family are all save through this fire.
I wish you the best dealing with this mayhap.
