I regularly visit a friend of mine in the next street every afternoon. And this particular day was no different. My pup [? – she’s no “pup”! – she’s a 10-year old Dobermann!] and I were returning home, to prepare dinner. And as I neared our street, I suddenly realised there were two cop cars on the corner, outside a restaurant. I started wondering what on earth could have happened in there. But when I reached the corner, this is what I was confronted with. The entire street, from one corner to the next, was filled with fire engines, cranes, an ambulance, and police cars blocking it off at both ends.
Went home, put my dog inside the house, and grabbed my camera. Here’s a selection of the resulting photographs.
By now, I had discovered that they’d been having a barbecue on the balcony of one of the apartments in the new building over the road, when the gas bottle on the barbecue simply exploded – burst into flames.
After which, as you can see, all hell broke loose in the street. By the time I turned up, it was pretty well all over – and STILL had all this stuff there!
Don’t “pretend” knowledge you haven’t got. If you don’t know how to cook, leave it to someone else who does. Otherwise, you might just burn more than your steak!
