That's awful! At least those pretty tiles were spared.

The tile work came endured the fire will. I hope the people and their property were saved.

Marvelous capture, but always hate to see the damage that fire does particularly to such beautiful, old homes/buildings! Enjoy the day and your weekend, JM!

I'm hoping it has been restored inside. The tile work is beautiful.

Jacob said...

That's very sad! I hate fires! When I was in Navy boot camp, we had to learn fire fighting...(fires aboard ship are nasty) and I hated it...firefighters are my heroes.

Estos azulejos são maravilhosos! Blue on pink, just great.

I don't mind decaying houses but always find burnt out ones very sad.

VP said...

I'm glad the azulejo survived. Is it a recent fire?

JM said...

@VP: I think the fire took place this year. I have previously photographed the door and the building was OK then.

Virginia said...

As always, I love the color and the tiles and the ironwork and .........everything about your beautiful city JM. But most of all.....your new and fab profile photo. :)

So much to like, the tile work, of course, the pinkish facade, the architecture...too bad about the fire.
