    And apparently, a hot store too.

    Glad everyone made it out okay, and props to the brave men and women who fought this fire. I can't even imagine what that's like in Arizona heat while wearing full fire gear.

    And may I just say.....yay for fireproof walls! Should be a legal requirement on all new buildings.

    At first, I thought it may have been caused by a faulty/old or over-worked A/C unit. But it looks like it may have been related to a micro burst that happened nearby. Lightning, perhaps?

    If so.....man, that's one hell of a lightning strike! God doesn't like membership discounts, apparently. :animlol:

    Now, if you'll excuse me......I have a Cadillac to fill up at Safeway....:D

    Seriously, those fireproof walls.....wow. Certainly did their jobs.

    I'm very interested to know the cause of this. Can you imagine if it was an Illegal instead of a lightning strike? This forum would lose its mind.

    Word is, the roof collapsed due to heavy rainfall and ruptured a gas line.

    I've never seen a fire spread like that one did. I was watching live on TV on a fluke. A weather crew was out and about reporting on the weather and saw smoke just a short distance away and followed it.

    I miss Safeway. Ten checkstands, two of them open...during peak hours. They even close some of the self-checkout machines just to keep the lines longer.

    Oh, wait, I don’t miss it.

    May pass on that. Used to deliver to a lot of different Safeway stores. The meat cooler in EVERY store smelled rotten. No other stores meat cooler ever did.
