Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Smelling Like Smoke

--by Brad2, posted May 13, 2021
A grassfire tore through my community with the aid of 50 - 60 kmph winds. Officers helped by going door to door to fight the fire until the fire department arrived. I got involved when it breached a fire trail and started for some houses, one belonging to my nephew and his family. I arrived just in time to put out this fire that started right beside his house. Moving old furniture aside, I found an old bedsheet and dunked it in a puddle and used it to put out the fire. I was glad to save my grandkids, who each gave me a big hug, my reward. It was a very busy 20 minutes, directing fire crews to the right locations, getting dirty, and getting right in there to help. I am glad no one got hurt.
