The North Woods are a place where you don’t get much of a chance to live.
For the last 40 years, residents have been locked inside their houses for fear of a house fire.
Now, in 2017, a fire that destroyed their home in a devastating fire in Northwood could bring more destruction.
In a video that has gone viral, a man who lives in a home near the North Woods said he had not seen his own family for the last year.
“I don’t know if they’re OK or not,” he said.
As the video went viral, the man spoke out about the fire.
On Friday, the Northwoods Fire Protection District (NFPD) said that it was investigating the death of the man’s wife, who died on Friday.
The NFDD said in a statement that the NFBD was conducting an investigation into the death.
The NFPD said that the woman’s husband had died of carbon monoxide poisoning and that the man who lived in the home had been taken to hospital for treatment.
What caused the fire?
The NFBHD said that a “small fire” started on the second floor of the home in late December.
Firefighters had been battling the blaze for two weeks when they noticed a “large fire” on the ground floor.
They arrived at the home to find a large fire on the roof of the second story, which had a roof fan on it.
A fire crew and firefighters used a ladder to get the fire out of the roof and onto the ground.
The man who was sleeping upstairs suffered a fractured wrist and a collapsed lung, and died of the carbon mono poisoning, according to the NFDHD.
Northwood residents have lived in a house since the early 1900s.
How to avoid a house explosion in the NorthWood?
Fire fighters will try to bring the fire under control in a fire and smoke suppression training, NFPD officials said.
Firefighters will also use a ladder and a smoke suppression unit to try to control the fire in the house, but there may be more to come.
