i live behind it. . . my house smells like smoke! i came home 3:30 nothing then. I got back home 5:30 and walked in my house and thought what is that smell!! I thought my place on fire somewhere! I walked around and saw the triplex with windows upstairs broken out and inside all black. I turned my air on thinking hoping that some of this smell will go away. Any other ideas I appreciate it. Glad no one home but hopefully they have renters insurance.
