Welcome home to a real fire at Manorbier B and B!
I think there was a television advert many moons ago along the lines of come home to a real fire. In that context it was probably advertising the delights of having a coal fire in your sitting room to keep you warm and toasty in the Winter. In my scenario I came home one day at the beginning of April 2014 to be met by six fire engines,an ambulence,worried friends and neighbours. The Chief Fire Officer suggested I should sit down in the garden as the damage was not just a little bonfire on my first floor in one guest room. It transpired that it had destroyed all of my first floor. Every ceiling,wall,bathrooms,clothes,furniture,shoes and bedding were covered in a thick black tar like substance from smoke damage.
