FLAMING GUEST POST PART THREE:
I moved out of the way so the firetrucks could get by. And then I stood there, transfixed, praying that they would be able to save my home. As I watched, I noticed a patch of flames at the edge of the road. The flames stretched up, as if willing itself taller. And then I saw something that I thought was impossible. A flame jumped. It bounced into the middle of the road and hopped to the other side where it ignited the grass.
I couldn’t believe it. I wanted to sprint down the road and stop it, but the grass was dry, and it spread too quickly for me to do anything about it.
Wringing my hands, pacing, and praying while my family rushed in and out of my house, a car pulled to a sudden stop beside me. I looked to see my best friend stumble out of the backseat, with tears streaming down her cheeks. We grabbed each other and embraced while her dad and uncle went to help my family.

FLAMING CRIMES EXCERPT:
Donovan turned in the opposite direction. Fire burned along the street, licking the asphalt with its orange tongues. The flames were as tall as him and seemed to be gyrating against an invisible barrier, trying to break through it. As he watched, the unthinkable happened. A ribbon of fire broke off and leapt into the middle of the street. The flame bounced along the asphalt to the other side where it ignited. He ran to the burning grass, but that flame had a mission. It spread quickly, aiming for the dry brush a foot away. When he reached it, he stomped on the flames with his sneakers. He wasn’t fast enough, though. The brush burst into flames, and those flames were slithering up a tree trunk. He had nothing to put it out with, so he ran back to the firefighters.
“Hey, it jumped the street!” He pointed. In the short time it took him to get to the firefighters, the fire had doubled in size.
