Dear Diary,
Today was a really hectic and tiresome day at school. We had a MATHS test. I felt very lethargic when I returned home. I felt like dozing off immediately so I fell into a deep sleep for about two hours. I ordered pizza for supper when I woke up. After a hearty meal, I settled reluctantly on my study table to do my homework when I smelt a peculiar and pungent smell....I looked in the kitchen but everything was fine there. Suddenly I caught a glimpse of very bright light out of the window. Curiously I went to the terrace to see what was going on....A NEIGHBOUR'S HOUSE WAS ABLAZE!!! It was one of my schoolmates' relative's residence. Then I heard a siren indicating the arrival of a fire brigade. Every neighbour was already there when my family and I went out. People were whispering to each other. We got to know that the inhabitants of the burning residence were gone out for dinner and the old and ill granny was still inside! The viewers were totally harassed and dumbfound at the sight of the glowing yellowish-crimson flames engulfing the house with a weak and helpless granny inside. Minutes later she was brought out unconscious by some rescuers and the family had returned too. Without further delay, the old lady was rushed to the hospital. Sympathetic neighbours were consoling the frightened family members. We got to know that the cause of the fire was an abrupt short circuit in the electrical wires. Later the crowd retired to their own homes and the situation was handled. We all learnt a lesson from this happening that we should all be careful and get our home electricity systems and electrical appliances regularly checked to save ourselves from such incidents!
