Bronco destroyed in Woolsey fire

https://www.foxnews.com/entertainmen...y-woolsey-fire

Gerard Butler, the actor, posted a pic of his burned home. Looks like he lost his Bronco, too. See link above.

And, here’s what it used to look like - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5jn1U6Yk04

And steel framed too. The under-structure was stout (but look at that warped beam!) but apparently the outer skin was still flammable like so many others.
Stucco and stone and concrete are great, but not much help if the heat and flames get inside.

Bummer crazy. But a picture his children and their children will look at in the future and feel the pain too.

Sad for sure but a Bronco can be replaced, I've read they have hearses out while they are searching through houses looking for bodies.

Wow! I feel like sort of a celebrity now for owning a car model like his!
Does this mean I can call him Gerald now?


Well you could call him Gerald but it would probably be a big fail since he is Gerard!

So sad. The look on his face shows is pain for his loss, goes to show no matter what your bank account for some it's more.

My heart goes out to those that lost family and friends with everything they owned.

My buddy lost his '75 in the Paradise fire in NoCal. Lost his house and business also. Thankfully, his family is ok.
