    Chair

    In the burning country I came into a village that was deserted by all. Mines and booby traps were shattered allover and only now some inhabitants started to come back home.  I made a stroll with one of them.  His mood was sad and dark.  We went to a house. The door was open...

    Neighbor

    My neighbor's house burned down a lot when we were kids. I actually saw the lightening strike once when I was about 6. I never figured out what was wrong with the house, but it would periodically get stuck with lightening, and I would just be so glad it wasn't my house. Maybe...

    We Were At the Coffee Shop and Saw Smoke and Flames Down the Block

    My Best Friends House

    My friend's family lost their home to what they think was caused by a malfunction in the electrical wires. The fire took at most 12 minutes for the 2nd floor to collapse into the first, and about 30 minutes for the whole house to be engulfed in flames. They lost everything...
