    We could see the flames from the bacck yard! They seemed 12ft high! The trees just lit up with flames! My heart was pounding! If it wasn’t for this one man, maybe we wouldn’t of known about the fire soon enough? I am glad thatwe all weren’t killed! I’m thankful for all Firefighters, They are life savers!
