Christmas Eve Fire

Thursday, Dec 24, 2015

Around 25 homes where destroyed in a big blast at Station 3 between Kingfisher Farm and the Mainroad. The fire in our neighorhood started at 11 am. I wanted to leave the house, but the privat road to our house was blocked by the fire. It was a scary situation for the people because it was not sure which way the fire was about take.
