My name is David. One day I was walking home when I saw a fire in the downstairs window of a very big house. I went to the door and shouted loudly but nobody came. There was a telephone in the street near the house so I phoned and told someone about the fire. After about five minutes a fire with blue lights on the top came round the corner. It was very exciting! Firemen were running everywhere, throwing water on the fire and then. Suddenly, everything was all right again. I went into the house with the firemen.
