The Fire

Good Essays
A dark, smoggy night in the middle of winter, chills were running

through the rooms of the house, like a ghost silently coming and

silently going. Suddenly, in the distance, there was a faint booming

sound like a drum being beaten. The noise soon started to get louder

and louder and louder until all that could be heard was the deafening

noise. People from houses along the street ran out in their dressing

gowns onto the road and huddled together to witness a roaring fire

devastating the house of a family living nearby. The owners of the

house desperately attempted to remove valuable and sentimental items

from the burning wreck, but all was in vain as the glaring fire

obliterated their irreplaceable possessions and their home.

The incandescent flames suddenly erupted scattering fragmented glass

and debris several yards away. The chillness of the stale, city air

was devoured by the scorching blazes of the vicious element, which had

just destroyed the lives of a victim family.

As the sun crept above the horizon, it shone vibrantly lighting up the

scenery in the countryside landscape, but the events of the previous

night had left an indentation in the surroundings of the small,

unfamiliar settlement.

At the area of desolation, smoke continued to billow out of the rubble

and a thick deposit of ash and dust had covered the street making it

completely unrecognisable. The sky seemed as though it would release

its contents on the gloomy scene. Impenetrable, dense smog polluted

the atmosphere like a black cat creeping around the streets, but the

rain stayed where it was, like an army in a battle, time is needed for

the battle to start...

... middle of paper ...

... could be done. People

living in their snug, warm homes ran to their windows to witness

sheets of torrential rain crashing to the thick, impenetrable tarmac.

As it fell onto the ground, loud thundering noises were made like the

shattering of glass. The ground was almost groaning in grief as the

rain continuously hammered it at a huge force and settled in great

pools of motionless water.

The sun shone its rays, yet again, after many hours of thunderous

rain. The puddles had forms large pools of water and shone in the

gentle sunlight, yet the remains of the destroyed house lay there in

between two other towering houses and had been abandoned by its owners

who had left it to move on to a new place and leave their old one to

stay there in its place, solitary and pitiful as it lay in ruins on a

wet, windy winters day.
