Have you ever seen a building or anything catch fire? If so, what happened? Or, have you ever been in a fire?

I just saw a horrible fire tonight. I stopped at the corner store to get a sandwich and smokes, and before I pulled out of the parking lot, firetrucks barrelled down the road and stopped at the Chinese restaurant across the street. Then I saw that smoke was coming out of it.

As the firemen ran into the building, the whole thing suddenly caught ablaze. Fire was coming out of the windows and the roof, and spread to the trees and the buildings next door.

Within minutes, the area was swarmed with firetrucks, police, ambulances, and at least fifty onlookers taking pictures with their camera phones.

I couldn't move my car anywhere, so I was right in front of the whole thing, until the Seven News crew set up in front of my vehicle.

I just learned on the news that two of the firefighters died. What a tragedy.
