I was just sitting here on the couch and surfing the net when I started getting a headache. Then I noticed that there was the smell of sulfur; it kinda smelled like the Fourth of July exploded. Then I heard the sirens. I knew this had to be bad…and close.
I grabbed my mom and we jumped in the car. We didn’t have to go far at all, our street looked really foggy, but it wasn’t fog, it was smoke. We drove just a bit (i’d say half a block) and discovered that an abandoned pub was engulfed in flames. We left about 15 minutes ago when it looked like it was dying, but it’s on the news now and the building’s engulfed again. The WORST part is that the wind is blowing directly towards my house. I can’t tell you how much I reek of smoke right now. UGH.
Good news is that nobody was injured or hurt…my tummy’s just upset (not helping my IBS) and my mom had to use her inhaler. IT STINKS!!!! The fire also doesn’t have anywhere to jump, so that’s a good thing.
Here are a few pictures I took – my camera SUCKS and out of 28 shots, this was the best I could get. (Seriously, I can only take one picture before my camera dies and I have to turn the batteries. I think a new camera will be in order soon.).
I know it doesn’t look like it, but they just showed on the news that the whole left side is now in flames. They’re letting it “burn all the way out”….um…doesn’t make much sense to me.
AH! The journalist in me realllllllllly wants to walk back over because the fire’s going again (the sky is red outside my house), but my stomach hurts and I’m tired.
