Boy, never dull around here. Remember that awful fire from the 4th of July? Well, a construction crew began tearing it down today and somehow the bulldozer that was doing the job fell over onto the house next door. (You can see video footage of the toppled mess via that link.)

Excavator Crashes Into Stoneham House

STONEHAM (WBZ) ― An excavator trying to demolish an unoccupied Stoneham home tipped over Monday afternoon, crashing into the house next door.

While no one was injured, neighbors said it was a miracle that the people inside the house next door weren't hurt.

The excavator was working on an unoccupied home at 6 Winthrop that burned in a fire last July. It's unknown what caused the excavator to crash into the other house.

The operator of the machine was not injured.

I actually heard the crash earlier today, but I just assumed it was part of the effort. So was I surprised to see the corner of my own house on TV a little while ago when they ran the story! I can still see the lights from the news crew outside my bathroom window.

Geez. I'm just glad no one was hurt.
