One night, as I was sleeping, I heard loud cries of “Fire! Fire!”, I got up and saw our neighbor’s house on fire. I rushed out along with my parents.
Everyone in our neighborhood was out and trying to help put off the fire with water and sand. Thick smoke was coming out of the house.
Soon the fire engine came. It was a big red vehicle. The firemen got down to work immediately. They sprayed water on the house. After an hour’s effort, they were finally able to control the fire.
Everyone in the house was safe and only one portion of the house was damaged. We asked our neighbors to stay with us for the night. It was such a scary experience that none of us could sleep that night.
