Hixie's Natural Log

2006-10-28 22:16 UTC Fire truck

Last night around 2am a big long fire truck parked silently next to my tower block. After a few minutes the three firemen got the ladder out and one climbed up to the third floor of the apartment complex opposite. Then after a good five, ten minutes, during which no fire was seen, no cats meowed, and no maidens were rescued, the ladder was brought down, the two firemen climbed back into their truck and the truck drove off.

Wait, two?

What happened to the other one?!
