Subject: Re: Fire Problems! House Burnt Down!

G ' day

I copy you here an email that is self explanatory!

Those of you who have had this problem please advise us how
to proceed?  Also if any of you want to send your good
wishes to Chris and Iris and any advice please do so.  They
could do with some cheering up and encouragement to rebuild
in straw bales.

Warmest regards The Straw Wolf slightly singed!

John and Sue,

I thought you may be interested to know that the night
before last our buildings were all burnt down.

We had two straw-bale buildings and a garage and were in the
process of preparing for earth/lime rendering (Peter
Robinson was booked to do this straight after the straw-bale
conference).  All were completely destroyed.

The fire started at about 10.45 at night - that's when the
neighbours called the fire brigade and us.  I arrived at 11
or so, and all buildings were completely alight.  We had a
lot of straw stored in the garage - had some one lined up to
buy it the following evening - John from Tilba Tilba (he may
have done a course with you).

Thanks for your advice to have the buildings insured (we

I think the fire must have been deliberately lit, but I
would be surprised if I ever find out who by.  I guess we
will see what the police and insurance people turn up.

Not sure what we will do now...

Chris Lowe.
