The side of the house was damaged extensively where the outdoor patio is.....and being that the deck extends out onto the street, the flaming Mazda Miata set that stuff well ablaze. The side of the house that was damaged also has another problem. The flames went into the vent above the living room (right off the patio) and scorched all sorts of stuff up in the crawl space up there. If you look at the front of the house you don't see so much damage. It's really on the side of the house where the most damage was done and that includes the railroad ties that supported the outdoor patio.
The fate of the patio doesn't sound promising and, unfortunately, it's also where Morrison supposedly wrote the lyrics to the Doors song "Love Street." We hope the house is repairable and send King our well wishes.
