    So I was just being a bum this morning wake and baking and playing some Apex and I hear loud hysterical screaming from a women outside. Then I hear a yell for help by what sounds like a young man and dogs start Barking. I didn't react immediately until it repeated again(my bad but it all happened in a few seconds).

    So I jump up and bolt outside to see my neighbor a mother who is in her 30s screaming hysterically, clutching her dog, the house is on fire in the living room bottom floor, and all windows of the house bottom and top floor are billowing black smoke. So I yelled at her "is anyone in the house!!!" She screams "yes my husband!!!!! Hes upstairs trapped in the shower aaaaaaahhhh!!!"

    Ho-Lee fuck. I took one look at that house and my heart sank. I thought someone was going to burn alive for a second because no way was that guy getting out. I yelled at the 18 year old guy that was first to the scene, another neighbor. "Get a ladder now!!!"


    Fuck this kid is a hero. He practically warped back with a ladder, I'm not sure where he grabbed it from but he appeared in seconds with this ladder and I ran for my cooler of water that had been sitting on my deck in the rain. Raced back and put it by the base of the ladder and assisted this 18 year old who already has the guy coming out onto the ladder.

    Nobody was hurt and the guy stuck inside was calm as fuck lol.

    I'm shocked at how fast the fire must have progressed. It's not a big house or yard and it's right next too me. If she was in the yard and he was in the shower, this fire must have gone up pretty quick because it was in full force by the time she started screaming and me and that other guy came to the scene.

    The young guy was incredibly out of breath after we got the guy out. I think he adrenaline dumped hard going for the ladder. Good stuff.

    Stay safe folks.

    I have military training and experience. This 18 year old is the real hero. Good kid I'll have to chat with him.

    Is that because you have a micropenis and don't want the word getting out?

    House fires grow crazy fast because most house materials these days are synthetic. A living room can become fully enveloped (totally in flames) with 5 minutes with modern materials. Meanwhile, houses with old furniture line couches and pillows, made from actual cotton would sometimes take 30 minutes to hit the same point.
