The HUGE fire!

Around 5:30pm  on the middle Sunday of the holidays, Vikram, his dad and I went to school to play touch for a few minutes. Later some kids we think they were from Intermediate and they said "excuse me mister but there is a fire down there" and guess where he was pointing to Murawai pod. Vikram's dad said stay here but we did not listen we just followed him each time we got closer we could smell smoke it got worse and worse. Then I was shockingly amazed we saw the rubbish bin completely melted down to the wheel. I could see black burnt rubbish, there were burn marks on the pole we suspected it to be drunk people because we saw beer bottles and beer cans on the floor. The fire was scorching hot my dad went to someones house and asked them for buckets.
They gave him buckets then he came back Kevin and I filled them up with water and chucked it on the fire when we did it got bigger then shrunk. Then Vikrams dad called Miss Cheeseman, then Miss Cheeseman called Mr Sumich and Mr Sunny. The smell was awful then we check the other pods to see if there was another fire then we went up to the office to see if there was anyone to help us but there was nobody there. Then we went back down to Murawai to see what was happening. The fire was out when we went back there Kevin and I were pretty happy for the fire to be out. Then we went on the playground to play for a few minutes then Vikram went home with his dad and I went home on my bike.
