Burner And Family Survive House Fire

Slobber And Spittle Blue candidate Darcy Burner and her family, except for their cat, survived fire that consumed their house this morning. According to the Seattle Post Intelligencer:

When she explains why she decided to run for Congress, Darcy Burner says the birth of her son, Henry, five years ago changed her life.

Tuesday morning, he may have saved it.

A few minutes after 7 a.m., Henry burst into his sleeping parents' bedroom in their home near Carnation, yelling about a fire. Burner scooped up Henry and ran outside, as smoke filed their wood-frame rambler on the edge of Ames Lake.

"He woke up and did exactly what he's supposed to do," Burner said.

Dave Neiwert has a good summary of the events over at FireDogLake, with many more links.

I just want to extend my condolences to the Burners for the loss of their home and their pet.
