Tonight, there burst out a fire close to my house. A tire-junkyard, about 5 minutes walk from my house, caught fire. There are black clouds over the city, and poision fumes. The police is driving around my neighbourhood, telling people in speakers to close windows and telling us to get ready to evict. I see that people in nearby houses are leaving, and my family might go to my grandmother, for some time. We don't know for how long. This is really scary.
When I got home from work, I went off the car and ran into the house. I had a scarf over my nouse and mouth, and it was disgusting. The smell of burning rubber and petrol isn't nice :blink:

On this page HERE are pictures of the fire. Under the picture is a link, it says "N?sta", there you can see more pics.

We leave our house if the wind changes directions.

Yeah, I feel sorry for you. That's one of the worst thing which could have happened around your house. I hope that the pile of tires is not too big.

It will probably leave a whole mess... Cleaning everything afterward is not pleasant at all... But as long as you don't get intoxicated you should be fine. If I were you I would go somewhere else ASAP until it end.

Piles of tires take ages to burn, there's a really big one in Ireland and it's been smouldering for 20 years and they can't put it out.

Our house is save for now, I've been told, but if the wind changes the slightly I move to my grandmom. We're closing all windows and taping then down....

Oh, I can't wait for tomorrow, having to take the bus to school!

Maybe now you'll learn not to play with matches...

Nah, we'll miss you if you have to evacuate, but your health comes first.
And NO-ONE can make a Christmas dinner like good old grandma! :w00t:

Well, we probably won't have to go.
Although they evacuated over 600 people from the houses around me tonight! But my house is in a good place when it comes to the wind right now.

This morning, the air outside was still disgusting, but without a doubt better than last night.

Now Auja is rushing me to finish this so she can use the computer. :ranting:

Cya!
