I was reading the online version of the Ottawa Citizen while eating my lunch today when I came across the following item:
Fire damage put at $380,000
A fire on Bell Street early yesterday at a two-storey commercial/residential complex caused about $380,000 in damage. The Ottawa Fire Department says the fire at 188 Bell St. caused about $250,000 worth of structural damage and consumed about $130,000 worth of contents. Firefighters responded to the call at 2:37 a.m. and reported that flames were visible upon arrival. No one was in the building at the time of the blaze, which required 50 firefighters and 17 trucks to extinguish. The cause is still under investigation.

That must be just around the corner, I thought, 188 Bell Street, on my side of the block. Why does that address sound familiar? It's not...
I went to my blog and did a search. Opened the top posting and there it was.
I went by after work and took photos. Wedel,my source of 90% chocolate has been destroyed.
And yesterday, I thought I lived a charmed life.
