yes very lucky! I would have been in the house and had it burning around my ears. it burned on the north and east sides and there was very strong wind from the south. we are off the road quite a way so don't think it was like a cigarette thrown from a car. we hadn't had the wood stove started for 4-5 days either. so we just don't know.Wow! You were blessed that the house didn’t catch fire!
