    The first sign that something was happening, and that it was happening NOW.

    I ran a good three kilometres to get to the scene, and it took me about 20 minutes. The firefighters got there 4 minutes before I did... I was surprised at how long it took.

    They really didn't like me... here's one shooting a dirty look my way.

    And my favourite of the bunch:

    Alas, my running was not enough - I got there too late to snap any photos of any flames.

    Well if it took them 16 min to get there like you stated they would not have been able to extinguish the fire in four mins. Not possible.

    You're right, fightin14.

    Did I mention that the fire was out when the firefighters got there?

    + 1 for fast thinking neighbours!

    The fire was started by the construction workers who were renovating the house, one of them put a blow torch down "for a second" :)lol:) which promptly started the whole escapade.
