The sheriff dragged him out of the burning house. Jack then had a free temporary residence in Pueblo for a while.

True story, yes, but why do folks always focus on the negative parts of the story. I mean, other than the negative temperatures?
Carol used to like the windows that Jack built. Seriously, the guy built the entire house. Doors, windows, trim, everything. It was a cute 900 sf cabin. I laughed when he said the uitility bills would only be $50 a month. He was right.
Of course, the lot had a ton of firewood on it. Me and Jaimee (Carol's daughter) used to skid the logs out of the woods and down the hill to the back of the house - on our mountain bikes. Jaimee was 8 then. It was so cool to have tons of wood piled up back there. Just go out, fire up the saw for an hour, and presto! Two more months of fuel.
I did have to replace the Franklin stove Jack had in there after the second chimney pipe fire. But other than that, the place was great.
