A Fire Next Door
I was sitting in my room doing my school homework. My father was working on the laptop. My mother was correcting her tuition papers and my brother was watching T.V.
Suddenly I heard a loud bang. My pen flew out of the window. I went to see where my pen had fallen. I heard someone crying for help. I called my parents. We rushed down to see what had happened. We saw fire billowing out of the window. The fire was in our neighbour’s flat. There lived an old lady and her grandson. When we shouted, “fire, fire”, then everybody ran down with their belongings. Then we called the fire brigade. The old lady also came down. But none of the fire brigades were available as they had to go to some other place where there was a bigger fire.
So all the men made a group and started to douse the fire. It took a long time and lots of water. But luckily the fire came under control. Soon the fire brigade also came and they completed the work of dousing the fire completely and we were all saved from a bigger disaster.
