Go to Google Maps, and search for "Eagle Point Drive, Ark" then head south on Eagle Point Drive. (You can even see the fire trucks on Butterfly Dr).

Amazing.

    HA! Probably a home about to get foreclosed on…

    I have to agree that is really strange…you can follow the firehose to the hydrant at the end of the block.

    I grew up in that neighborhood. If it’s not outright insurance fraud it’s probably collateral damage from bottle rocket wars. Lots of delinquent vandalists in Sherwood.

    The map in your post was clickable.

    Did you see how far they had to got to hook up to a hydrant. Looks like 300’+.
