This is my article about the fire that struck my neighborhood.

Everything seemed fine that day until we started hearing sirens in the distance and than we could smell a lot of smoke. Everybody was gathering in the our neighborhood outside talking amoungst themselves. Kids were crying, animals were running out of the woods down the street, and I had to get my father's dogs and put them on their leashes to try to keep them calm. Fire engines came racing down to the end of the street where we lived to try to put out the flames. It was pretty scary when we started seeing the fire and how close it was coming to everything that we owned. One of my neighbors caught some of the footage of the event on home camera. I found a news clipping from the incident and mashed it into one video. See below for that.
