Experiencing Every Day Life as it happens

We woke up to cars hooting and noise outside, climbing out of our tent we saw cars leaving the campsite in a hurry. Then we saw a group of people standing next to a building billowing smoke, they had managed to get hoses from somewhere and water was spraying out into the air and onto the smoldering roof. We joined the crowds and watched as most of the fire was put out by the water. Thinking this was It I over heard a guy saying “No ways that roof is going to go up again in flames, its thatch the fire is still inside and under the thatch” He was right in a matter of hours the roof started flaming and then turned into an inferno spreading quickly to other roofs, as people were evacuating other accommodation.
