Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Fire

Last year when i was coming from school, to home i heard people shouting fire! fire!. When i moved closer to see what was happening i saw a house on fire. People were trying their best to put out the fire but it didn't. The fire burnt the house seriously but even though the poor water it was just the same. From far i heard a sound of s siren coming with fire fighter's i was as happy as a king because i knew that the fire is to be put out. Immediately the fire fighter removed their pipes of water and then poured into the house and the fire went out.
