The Cellar Experience
Carlton and Savannah woke up to the odor of smoke.
The trees were burning and the fire moved quickly with the wind in the direction of their house.
They rushed to the children’s room and met them racing down the hall with large frightful eyes. Alex was desperately trying to hold their puppy as he squirmed in his arms.
Carlton hurriedly ushered everyone down stairs to the cellar. He knew they would not have time to escape the fire..
It was dark in the cellar, but he had a flashlight he always kept by the door.
They huddled together waiting, praying and hoping for help to arrive in time.
Carlton’s mother had notified the fire department when she did not hear from him. She knew they could be in danger when she heard about the fire.
The fire trucks arrived, put out the fire and everyone rescued.
