Scorched Splendor

A  while ago I was walking through beautiful northwest Portland and passed this dramatic sight. The lovely historic house is like a giant spent matchstick. So strange how even the scrolled columns are still intact, just smoked with soot. Beautiful in a Goth sort of way.

We live very near to this apartment building; quite upset when we saw what had happened to it. I assume - hope - they'll restore it. There are three (?) similar but distinct buildings all in a row there, which were designed by the same architect, I believe.
