My neighbour’s house is on fire

Sat 7th Nov 2015

My neighbour’s house is on fire

- what on earth can have caused it?


A candle left unattended?

A frying pan left on the cooker? Bad wiring?


Was it carelessness? Arson?

Petrol poured through his letterbox?


Was it visitors? Burglars? Relatives?

Friends? Fire raisers? Houseguests?


Was he storing inflammable liquids?

Ammonium nitrate? Aerosols?


And what’s he done to deserve this

now his house has burned down?


What will he do? How live?

Where will he find a home?


These are just some of the questions

police will want answered


now I call Fire and Rescue
