A house down the street is on fire.
There are 5 fire trucks and 3 police cars = many sirens. (Luckily no ambulances). I think this may be a good excuse to call it quits.
Update: the TV news reported that the fire was started by a stove. $40,000 in damages. No one was hurt. But, a deputy chief fireman's truck was struck by a car on the way to the fire. Two of the three car occupants were slightly injured. That's why there were so many sirens I guess.
