FIRE!!!!

Todays post in English

No, I didn’t wake up to someone screaming those words at me

Thank God!

It was the middle of the day and I was awake

Had just gotten home from the store

The house was burning

Flames licking up trough the roof

It had already spread to one neighbours house

Sirens could be heard far away, but getting closer

«The help on its way»

But not quickly enough

Flames doesn’t wait…..

They work fast and ruthlessly

Luckily not in my house…

brann langarinden

but in a row of 5 houses..

Just below our street

Thank God it was the middle of the day…

No one got trapped in the burning houses

But there were drama and panic

6 fire trucks at least

Police

Ambulances

A man crawls on to the roof of his house, only in a t-shirt and shorts….

a garden hose in his hand…

a man on the roof on the left side of the fire

ducks under the smoke and tries to stop the fire from getting to his house..

He is ordered back down by the firemen

It is to dangerous

Not worth it

Other houses near by are being asked to water their houses and lawn

It has been dry for so long

People arriving on bikes

Dogs that are never walked this way – has been dragged along by their nosy owner

People standing on rocks

climbing fences

HAS TO SEE!!

«what is it with people» ? I think to my self

Standing on my terrace with panorama view of the burning houses below me…

Staring like everybody else

Saying to my self that I have to be watching out for the fire not to spread to my house

Actually I don’t live close enough for that to happen…

If I am being honest…

Especially when the firemen has arrived with their big firehoses…

They are in control now

But I keep on watching

For a long time…

There is something about flames

attractive in a scary way

and of course rooting for the firefighters looking so awesome standing on the roof of the burning house

But 6 apartments are totally burned out!

Thinking of what that means for 6 families!

Everything they owned is gone!

«Stuff is just stuff and you get it back trough the insurance»

«The most important is that no one got hurt»

Of course!

BUT STILL….it must be permitted to be sad about what you’ve lost as well!

That favorite dress..

Maybe a christening robe that has been used for generations?

Jewelry from a dead grand mother?

drawing from the kids

the youngest favorite toy that she just cant sleep without

and not to mention a home

brann 2

When do they get that back?

Not for year at least

Living temporary for a long time….

My thoughts goes out to the families who lost their homes last weekend

Stuff is just stuff

But that’s easy to say when you still got all of yours….

I wish you all a good weekend

❤ ❤ ❤
