    Right before I left for work I was in my driveway and noticed a few plumes of yellowish smoke in the air being blown by the wind, my eyes followed the smoke down to the horizon where I realized it was coming from a wooded area behind some houses just one street over.

    I went in and got my wife and we went to the very rear of our yard when there was suddenly an explosion, I called 911 on my cell phone and a a guy from down the street who was out in the street behind my house said he had just called the fire department.

    Just then there was another explosion and you could hear the crackle of flames which were just becoming visible through the trees,it appears a structure of some type was on fire back there but I couldn't make out exactly where, I just know it was behind the houses that were on the street behind my house.

    The cops soon showed up and blocked off the area and I had to leave for work, I did notice that the whole neighborhood smelled like "barbecue" -seriously, it probably had something to do with trees burning.

    My wife called me while I was on the way to work and said the fire department had shown up apparently had the fire under control.

    I'm keeping an eye on the local news websites to see if they report what it was.

    I would hope that that is not the case. Those places are nasty.

    Yes, but since they are nasty, then wouldnt you want it to be a meth lab?

    A meth lab explosion gives off toxic fumes, so if that happened that would be pretty bad for the neighborhood.

    If it was a meth lab then the best you can hope for is the blast took out the scumbags running it.

    Yup. Anytime I hear about an explosion in/near a residential area in this area of the country, my first 3 suspicions are meth, meth, and meth.

    My favorite around here is in the winter when those fools set up meth labs in fish houses on the frozen lakes. Thanks for polluting our walleye and pike while poisoning yourself, addict fuck.

    You should have run over and tried to pee out the flames, thereby becoming something of a neighborhood legend.

    I am a neighborhood legend, I'm "that guy with all the kids".

    I'm also "The guy with the huge ass tree in his back yard he won't cut down".

    and, "That guy who works on his car in his driveway."

    My neighbors are snobs.

    ...I still haven't seen anything on the news about what exploded.

    Dude, its totally got War of the Worlds written all over it. There's definately gotta be some sort of cylinder in the woods slowly unscrewing while the cops and firefighters are just like "WTF do we do?" and crazy colored smoke plumes out. I'd say if not meth, then martians. Better prepare for those heat rays just in case...
