Christine Valada and Len Wein’s home burned to the ground on Monday. The escaped with Mike, but their dog was killed.
Harlan Ellison was over there turning the ashes with a shovel, trying to help them find anything left. (See Ellison’s long post from April 6.)
The fire was apparently caused by a power surge that shorted out a wall heater.
