Loss. This shot is of Brick Row in Hinton, WV, a block of homes built when
Hinton was a busy railroad hub for train workers to live in. All 11 homes were
destroyed by arson February 26, 2013. Click to see what they used to look like.

I am so glad you posted the before picture, I was wondering. What a loss. Is it even possible that they will rebuild?

I don't know who owns the property, Vickie, so can't say what might happen to it in the future. Right now it's a crime scene. It's also still smoldering, or at least it was yesterday when I took this picture. I couldn't get close enough to shoot the smoke, though.
