Before I could get good and asleep tonight, I was awoken by what seemed to be a scene from Close Encounters of the Third Kind… I could tell there was some sort of commotion outside, and there were all kinds of flashing lights outside… after opening the blinds, it turns out there were about a half dozen fire trucks and police cars in the parking lot of my apartment.

It soon became apparent that the building next to mine was on fire – the bottom-level apartment was quickly being overtaken by the flames… the door was open, and you could see inside – pretty spooky really. Eventually the flames started spreading outside to the apartment above it. After what seemed like a very long time, the firemen got the hoses going and put the fire out pretty quickly. I don’t think anyone was hurt in the process, thank God.

Now to get a few hours of sleep before I have to be at work…

One thought on “Fire!”

  1. Dude, glad to hear it wasn’t your apartment! I remember waking up once in Hermitage to flashing lights, the po-po had busted someone in my parking lot!
