Fire, No Fire

I was typing (a post :D) in the office while England Dan was serenading me when my officemate peeked in the office and said, "Did you see the fire?"

Fire?!? With my heart beating like hooves of galloping horses, I jumped off my seat and head for the front door.

A small crowd of curious onlookers was already gathering down the street, just outside the gate. And I spotted a TV station news crew, possibly from the TV network sitting beside our building, already capturing a video.

Then there it was, near the transformers on one of the electric post right at the corner of our fence. It was just a small fire, but one which could spread easily to the fiber optic cables installed up there and to God-knows-where. It was slowly eating the rubber insulations of some cables.

It's controlled now, thanks to the guards and the thing called Halotron but I'm still a little jarred and finding it hard to breathe. Guess, I need to chill out, maybe listen to Gregorian music and munch comfort food, so off I go now.

I'm glad no one was hurt, and I'm glad you got some good music and cozy food to make you feel better!

Of course you need some comfort food. I'll join you!

Gregorian music will calm you for sure. I'm glad no one was hurt. That's scary stuff. If I were you, I'd go home, put on some sweat pants, get a big bag of tortilla chips and make some queso. Now that's comfort!

You are allowed, that is traumatic stuff. Glad it was small and no one was hurt. Go get your comfort on!

I would have been scared, too!
