After a fire

 Across the street from the building where  my Saturday Go Club meets, there was an wooden apartment building with four apartments. I did not notice when it happened, in spite of it being only a kilometer or so from my apartment, but the entire top story burned. The walls are still intact but you can see that part of the roof is missing and some of the windows are damaged.
Here is another view that shows that the surface of the roof is gone. It is hard to see in the pictures but there is a yellow tape stretched around the fence and there are red signs saying that the building is dangerous and has been condemned. It is going to be interesting to see how long it takes to tear it down. Once that is done I expect that they will either turn it into a pay-by-the-month parking lot or build a new building on it. There is also the possibility that it will just stay an empty lot until the owner can sell it.
