Fire!!!!
« on: 20/12/2006 17:10:35 »
Today there was a fire that broke out in a block of flats in Bedminster. The police have arrested a man on suspicion of arson.....what a tool.

But some of the pictures of the fire is incredible. It's been quite foggy all day, but early this morning it was thick.

Have a gander at these pictures though, amazing





The first link is the story and the second link is the pictures

That is a pretty amazing thing to see. My sisters house burned down twice right next door to me within a 20 year period! 1rst time it was an old house had a faulty wire, second time just a couple years ago, was a guest they had let a cigarette burn in a tray and it fell outor something and the place burned down.. Lost the dog in that one but everyone else was ok. they were gone but guest had gone for a visit at neighbors.. The heat from the fire was so intence we had to hose down our house to keep it from going up in flames... He lost his big rig and all of his mechanicing tools along with a guest house! The flames from a fire like that are crazy... I really don't like fire like that ! Camp fires fireplaces etc. ok!  Big fire, you might could say I have a healthy respect for them!!

Wow, that is crazy.
Over here it seems to be our firework factories that go up in smoke and bangs

I love fire, as a boy I should. Me and my friends would find things to burn and whatnot, it's a girl thing

I still love it. One time, a good few years back now, my cousin and I cut off a load of match heads and put them into a kinder egg container, we also added some zinc powder and a few other bits and pieces that might help. Then, we went to the Downs, the Downs is a huge green area where they have quite a few football pitches. Anywho, we were in this little part of the downs, kinda covered from the road and houses, lit the kinder egg after wrapping it in tissue and it made the biggest mushroom cloud that a little egg with match heads could  ;)

YOU are a little Pyro aren't you Danil!!!LOL THats alright a couple years ago me son started the field on firebehind my house in our horse pasture playing with a arather illeagal firework he found!! (YEAH RIGHT) This was on the July fourth, The fire department was called from 40 miles away on the 4th of July and the nice nice fireman scolded him understood his age and fascination and made him promise not to do it again as they would prefer to eat their nice steak dinner when it was hot on the holiday!! He has been known as "SPARKY" ever since! We had to stay home for 4 hours waiting on the fire chief to come and scold him too! We were late for our own celebrations... The little terd deserved it! Cold Dinner!!! LOL

Oh dear, but still LOL

Yeah, we were a little reckless when we were younger, and definitely no stranger to fireworks, it's also a reason why my hearing isn't great  ::) ;)

I don't play with them anymore, it's become a little harder to buy bangers now, or maybe it's because I haven't really tried to buy any  ;)

We shoot fireworks off at the beach.  NO WHERE NEAR MY HOUSE.  We've had 2 fires at our house, so we take no chances - at all
