It was the month of May. It was very hot day. I heard a loud noise. I got up and ran outside I saw that a house of my neighbour was on fire. The flames were rising to the sky. Everyone feared that the fire would spread the whole locality. Many people were running with buckets full of water and bags full of sand. They were throwing water on the fire. Many men, women and children had gathered. Soon two fire-engineers reached the spot. The firemen began to throw a lot of water with their pipes. They entered the burning house. They helped the family to come out. Fortunately no one was killed. It took the fire brigade about half an hour to control the fire. Luckily, there was no loss of life. Whenever I am reminded of the scene, my heart begins to sink.
