So there was a fire at my house today.
Literally when I came home from school, I saw a ton of smoke coming out from this car in out drive way (which isn’t ours, it belonged to the people who were currently doing work on our basement), I basically freaked the hell out. I ran inside and into the basement, telling them that there was smoke coming from their car. The two guys ran outside from the exit from our basement while I went the normal way back upstairs to look out the window and this was basically what I saw.
I called 911 but it just blank on the other line, so I called my mom and I was literally panicking and telling her to call 911 since the house phone of all fucking times didn’t feel like working.
This was almost an hour ago but I took more video on my phone, the side of our house ended up getting fucked up a bit and a lot of grass was burned, and the basketball pole is dead now too so.
I was freaking the hell out for the longest time because I couldn’t find my cats and I was afraid that they ran out and wouldn’t come back (one of my cats is a formal feral), but my mom just found them. Both my parents were at work and my brother was in college but they came when I called them. The people from the department made me sign some papers basically claiming that I didn’t do anything to be arrested for and I had to fill my name in a few blanks and describe everything I saw.
It’s so surreal??? Like what the hell would have happened if I stayed after school today?????? I’m just so pissed at the company who’s working on our basement like what in the fuck. I’ll post more later, I have video on my phone from when the fire got bigger.
What’s worse is I have a huge fear of fire so I kept switching from silent panic to hyperventilating when I was waiting outside for the fire department to come.
Worst fucking Earth Day ever.
