Bud AA3B will be on as V26K from the house next door.  No one seriously hurt but the shack is in ashes and Roy got out with just smoke inhalation. They lost everything. Please be patient with Bud. He will have to manually go outside to change antennas etc. Pictures onFRC Facebook page. facebook.com/w3frc
