A House on Fire
It was evening. I was preparing my lessons. Suddenly I heard a hue and cry at a little distance. I got out of the room and found a house of one of my neighbors was on fire. I ran to the spot. People were rushing towards it. I reached the spot and found everybody was busy in throwing water and sands to the burning house. I also tried my level best to extinguish the fire by throwing water and plantain trees. But the fire was too much ferocious and uncontrollable. After a few time the fire –service forces came and controlled the fire within a short time. In the meantime the fire caused great damages of the house and properties. Then we left the place with a pathetic heart. This memory still haunts me.
