The Big Black Fire.

There was a big black fire. It was by the Perimeter hwy off of Gunn and Redonda by the train tracks. It was grey from where I could see. I could only see the top of it. Now I will tell you a scary story of it. So kick your shoes off grab a snack and get comfy. Ready? Ok here I go.

On October 8th 2011 there was a fire. A horrible fire. We where leaving to go to chocolate factory( It is where you get to make chocolate stuff and eat it) When my brother said "what is that grey stuff over there?"
We all looked and it was smoke. So we said to are dad "can we go see?' So we had to put are windows up so the smoke wouldent come in.

We drove until the trains tracks.The rest of the road was blocked off. We saw a little path and fire cruse there. We looked up and saw BIG PUFFY CLOUDS of black smoke. Behind us was an abulance coming to the fire.There was a little office infront of the fire. They had to evacuate very soon before the fire got worse. Well there i said it, The fire got worse. There were people walking there to see what happend. People riding bikes there to see what happend. People in there cars to see what happend.

So we left because it was getting late. We went to the bank to get money and listen on the radio to see what happend. We can still see the fire. They said on the radio that they started to wrestle the fire at 5:00 in the morning and they said they have been fighting it for 8 and a half hours and they are still wrestling it. Wow that was a big fire.

We were driving home from the factory and got home at 5:30 in the afternoon and the fire was still going on. We had to leave to go somewhere else. We got back at night and the fire was still going on. They said on the radio the fire started with a gasoline truck tipping over. They wrestled it for like 10 hours and gave up. They were just going to let it burn until it was done. It was the biggest fire I have ever saw. It was very windy and it was blowing the fire the opposite way than us. But if it was blowing the way to us. We would have to evacuate.

That was my story about the fire. I hope you enjoyed it. And i have a question for you. What was the biggest fire you have ever seen? Thank you and have yourself a good day.

Hi Katie,
Great post! I saw that same fire on October 8. Actually, I was with Mrs. Dent Scarcello when I saw it.
The biggest fire I ever saw was right in my driveway. When I was in Grade 2 my Dad's car started on fire in the driveway one night. Our neighbour saw it and came running over. The flames were shooting up higher that our house! We had to go next door and wait for the fire department to come. The car was completely burned, but our house was okay and everyone was safe.

Hi Katie,

I am fortunate to have never seen a huge fire up close but sometimes our son (Mrs. Dent's brother) has a fire at his home on the lake to burn discarded material from the summer. Last year the fire was about 12 feet high and at least that in diameter. It was very hot and we were not able to roast any hotdogs last fall! This year's burn pile is the highest ever so I can only imagine how high and hot it will be. They usually park the volunteer fire truck close by - just in case!
