Fire Alarm

This was fire #1

A Reminder of Fire #2

If you’ve known me for awhile you’ll know that my building has had two two-alarm fires leaving residents homeless, a cat who didn’t have nine lives (or already used them), and sending at least one fireman to the hospital. So you can imagine the fear that the sound of a fire alarm sends through my veins, at least while I’m home. Unfortunately, I got to hear the piercing noise of the fire alarm tonight. People in my building know better than to ignore this sound. Residents gathered in the lobby with a baby in their arms and pets in crates. Fortunately this time the warning was unnecessary. The cause of the alarm was a burned steak. I’ll take that anytime over a real fire!
