I just got back from the scene where some house on the 14th floor caught fire, the block was just directly next to mine (Im living on the 8th floor).

It happend when i was playing CS:S, having a fun time pwning people. Then i smelt something burning. I thought it was some guy burning offerings to a dead relative cause its the Hungry Ghost Festival month. But i kept on hearing sounds of vehicles and lots of people talking. Then i recived a call from my sister, telling me that the 14th floor in the next block caught fire, not sure how it happend though, but i also heard that 1 died. By the time i got down there was only a little bit of smoke coming out of a broken window. fire fighters dont seem to be rescuing anyone, details should be on TV tonight or tomorrows newspaper.

Took some pictures too, may post them later on. Oh and, if you're expecting a huge fire blazing high up. Dream on. :p

Weird. Sucks that someone died in it.

A house burned down in our neighborhood maybe 6 or 7 years ago. House wasn't rebuilt for a long time, but I think someone lives there now.

Well guess i was wrong, no one died as the house was empty the time the fire broke out. Police said everything in the house was destroyed by the fire. They are trying to contact the owner of the house i think.

It must be a time for fires. A dorm room here on campus caught fire yesterday. They said it seems to be electrical. Have they said what caused the fire yet?

No i never heard of any cause of the fire. And the damn evening news doesnt say anything since its a minor fire. But the paper might have it.
