I was woken up at pre-dawn by sounds of heavy running and shouting. At first I thought there was a fight somewhere nearby …. I quickly got up and look out of the window but could see nothing. Still hearing those sounds, I made my way to the living room and look out of the balcony. What I saw shocked me for a team of fire-fighters were all busy putting up water hoses ….. it was then I realised that there was a fire nearby.

I looked further down and thought it was the block opposite my house but then I realised more and more people were gathering at the void deck at the opposite block and looking at my block.

I went to open my front door and that was when I saw the smoke coming out from the 7th storey. A neighbour’s flat was on fire 😦

Praying and hoping no one was injured, I continued to watch as the fire was put out.

Alhamdulillah …. within moments the fire was out and everything was silent again. Kuddos to the firemen for their hard work. As for my neighbour, I hope everything could be settle as soon as possible and that no one was injured during the breakout.
