"Have you seen the fire?" asked Child No.3 as she returned home earlier this week.
"Fire? No. Where?"
"Right outside! It's enormous. Five fire engines. Plumes of smoke. I can't believe you haven't noticed!"
I hadn't heard sirens. I hadn't noticed. And that's because the fire was actually nowhere near our house. It was, however, a serious one, about a mile and a half away, which had been burning for a couple of hours, sending plumes of thick black smoke 200ft into the sky.
Zooming in, you could be forgiven for thinking that there was a stormy rain cloud by the lamp post, but the bigger picture tells a different story! Nobody was physically hurt, thankfully, though houses around the blaze at commercial greenhouses had to be evacuated to a local pub. Not a great start to 2014 for one company. I hope they are well insured.
I'm linking up with Helena's 5th week of Zoom In Zoom Out ... 5 out of 5 so far ... how are you doing?
