It's Officially a FIRE!

Holy crap!

The building across the street from my work is on fire! It's not a large building, and I don't think anyone was in it at the time. My co-workers and I have just spent the last hour glued to our main front windows to watch the action. This is the most exciting work day in years!

**waits for the news truck**

My aquarium almost caught on fire yesterday morning.

When I got up, I could smell the electrical smell of something burning. When I went to turn on the light to the tank, wisps of smoke were coming out from the light fixture!

Glad I was home when it happened.

Now my fish are swimming in the dark.

When I was a kid, any kind of fire turned me into a hysterical lunatic...I was scared shitless. I think if I would have seen a burning building from across the street, I would have needed sedation.

When we were younger and out for the Sunday jaunt with the rents if my Dad whiffed a fire, he was off in search of it to see what the pandemonium was about. He was always really good at locating the place too.

It looks like it's over now. The building is pretty charred up and it's still smoking quite a bit. And most importantly, no one was hurt.

It was pretty cool to watch, though. I got to see the firemen kick down the doors and spray the place down and everything. And there's a mix of about 25 police, fire, and ambulance vehicles blocking all of the streets and filling up our parking lot. Good thing I didn't have to go anywhere today.

Hmmm. Are they going to be done by 5:00?

there was a fire in my apartment the other night. i was cooking some rice and i saw an orange glow under my pot. normally it's no biggie as i've got an electric stove, but it was glowing too much. i took off the pot and saw there was a flame. i just blew it out and turned off the burner and put the pot on another burner.

i'm surprised i handled it as well as i did. i knew it was okay to blow on it cuz it must've been some food that fell down there. had it been a bigger deal, i know where my fire extinguisher is.
