Hi everyone. Last night there was a fire around our house and I want to tell you a bit about what happened. First, I didn’t know how and what to write it, and what the title would be, but I think I wrote it pretty good eventually…
So, I’ll tell you what happened. Last night, my sister and I were home alone when we heard the doorbell ring at about 1.15 am. I first thought something was wrong with our bell, that happened before, but it kept going for a long time. After like 30 seconds we heard also banging on the door. It was extremely scary. The banging was so loud and it was in the middle of the night, so I hope you understand my sister and I were so afraid!
While calling our parents, my sister and I opened the door (finally) together. My heart was bouncing, I didn’t know who to expect at this time. There were 2 older people standing there and they told us that our hedge was on fire. After a little panic attack, I turned on all the lights in the house while my sister unlocked all the doors downstairs, so we could start extinguish the fire. The police was already called and some neighbors came to help us. Some did even hear the banging on our door, which means that the banging was super loud. My sister was filling tubs with water so other people could throw it on the fire, while I was informing all the people around the house who came to help is. Lol, my sister and I had some good teamwork going on there 🙂
The police finally came after 5 minutes (it felt like an hour) and I was relieved that we weren’t alone anymore. (I mean, there were at least people who’ve experienced a fire before. We weren’t alone because of all the other people) I woke up our other neighbors and I informed all the other people about the police. Everyone helped so well! It was just abnormal. There were like 10 people helping and we didn’t know at least 5 of them. It was a bit of a scary feeling, strangers in our house, but they were all so kind, sweet and helpful.
After another 5 minutes, the firefighters came. The fire wasn’t as big as it was in the beginning anymore and it didn’t got to our house, which we were all really scared of. The hedge is kind of close to our house so if the flames were big enough, they could also come to our house. (see the picture above)
So after the fire was out, almost everyone who helped went home. It’s just unbelievable how kind people can be to help us to really extinguish the fire. I think I would’ve done the same if I saw a fire, but without those people, who’d know what happened?
The police was so nice. They helped extinguish the fire, they made sure everyone was okay and they really calmed down my sister and I. I’m so grateful that everything went well. Yes, the whole hedge is damaged, as you can see on the pictures, but I think the most important thing is that we are okay and that the house is okay.
It actually felt a bit like a nightmare, but when I look at our hedge, I get to see that it really happened..
So, I was wondering, did any of you had an experience like this? Did one of you had something (around your house or your house) on fire? Or have you been home alone and something terrible happened?
Hope you’ll did have a nice weekend!
Much love, Anne ♥
