As I write this it is 9.00am on sunday morning after a night that could have ended very differently and trajically.
At 1.30 am I was woken by the sound of the smoke detector sounding and Helen who lives with her husband and two little boys in the connected property screaming to get out.
WE WERE ON FIRE!!!!!! If there is a world record for getting dressed and running out of a house,well ..... I broke it! Yes the main house was well and truly blazing and with the aadrenalin absolutely pumping through the veins we established that every one was out, dogs , cat et all.
The fire service were on site as quick as is humanly possible when you reside 1.5 miles down a farm track in the middle of bumble****nowhere. the officers battled the blaze for 5 hours and got it under control and damped down . The fire fighters from shropshire fire service were fantastic , profesional and very reasuring to all that were seeing their home dissappear before them.
any thing that could be salvaged was . and the heartbreaking job of filtering through all the fire and smoke damaged possesions and clothes now has to start.
So gents the Brock and Norris workshop at the Buttery farm will not be accepting visitors for a period of three weeks whilst we try to get some semblance of order back
and I crave your indulgence
The main thing everyone is safe and well and all that was lost can and will be replaced or rebuilt. If it does not break you it makes you stronger.
all the very best Mike Norris Brock and Norris Custom Rifles
