I was hanging out on the bed watching TV wif my pawents when the fiwe alawm stawted making noise
we sowt of ignowed it, till one of ouw fwiends in the building called us on the phone and said "thewe's a fiwe , get out"
so Mommi and Daddi gwabbed me and thwew on some clothes and we walked down the staiws
We live on the seventh floow and thewe was nothing thewe, but by the time we got to the fifth, thewe was lots of smoke and it was stinky
Thewe wewe tons of fiweguys on the stweet
about twelve big twucks
Daddi took pictoowes wif his phone while talking to one of ouw nice neighbows wif a baby and I talked to theiw doggie Pipew , who
i know fwom my wun
it was all bwight and evewyone was out
some of the hoomans wif babies went into the building acwoss the stweet and sat in that lobby cause it was cold and windy
but many of us just hung out outside
evewyone got comfy and fwiendly
thewe wewe cats and doggies and bunnies and lots of hooman pups
this little kid was shaking a little (I don't know if it was the cold ow being scawed but his Mom held him tight)
as wecouwceful NewYawkews, many got wawm dwinks fwom the cownew delli
and took it in stwide
it was a good chance to catch up wif neighbows and gossip
It appeaws that style was not fowemost in hoomans minds as they left theiw apawtments
the fuwwkids looked lots bettew than the hoomans
of couwse , you can't go wong wif a oonifowm
they finally let us back into ouw lobby, but not upstaiws
those laddews awe weally tall..they went up to the woof to make soowe nothing was buwning up thewe
Mommi got hew pants sopping wet by getting too close to the watew, hehehe
mowe neighbow fuwwkids
a bwand new baby fuwwgiwl
some of the stuff the fiweguys wewe cawying looked pwetty scaiwy, like hooks and chainsaws and hatchets and stuff
one of the fiwemen asked if it was a wequiwement to have a doggie in owdew to live in this building, hehehehehehe
ouw fwinds little Chawlie had a fwont wow seat on his Dad's shouldews
and of couwse Mommi cwadled me when I got sneepy and I was totally safe
No one was huwt, and aftew about two houws out of the building , we wewe allowed back in a little aftew midnight.
Mommi was angwy that she once again missed an evening of answewing fwiends on the blog..that was hew big gwumble, that , and the fact that Mywna and Womy wewe left behind and she was wowwied they would get smoke in theiw wheelie lungs. Ouw apawtment was fine, and we only had a slight smoky smell that came thwough the vents in the kitchen and bafwoom.
Mommi put vinegaw mixed wif watew in bowls awound the apt. and it was almost clear by this mowning.

As a side effect to this event, Lacie is now dating this fiwefightew
(Unfowtoonately, I sent a photo of this buff hot fiwefightew to my BFF Lacie
well, befowe I could finish the convewsation, she was on hew way..she made a date wif him immediately and awwanged to meet him by the wivew..
sometimes i despaiw........)
The fiwe was stawted by a homeless man making a fiwe next to the building on the highway side whewe no one sees..I think some of the spawks went into the vent and caught something..the damage was on the fiwst and second floow mostly smoke and the fiwefightews smashing things to pwevent the fiwe.
at least that's what we've heawd fwom the doowman today.
My fwiend Kawen told me that a fiwefightew told hew it could have spwead up the side of the building in anothew ten minutes if they hadn't gotten thewe.
We'we vewy gwateful that evewyone is safe..NO ONE GOT HUWT!
but once again we have to apologize fow not coming awound to answew youw bloggies..we'll twy today and tomowwow.
