It started like this...

The boys were playing video games in our playroom when they came out and said "It smells like someone's cooking hot dogs! Are we having hot dogs?".

Nobody was making hot dogs.

Um. What?

So we laughed it off.

Then our whole house started smelling like burning hot dogs.

We opened the front door and went outside to investigate. There was smoke everywhere!

"A fire! There must be a fire somewhere!".

Me and Jared rushed as fast as we could to the shed to grab our bikes! We rode around the neighborhood to find where the smoke was coming from.

We rode up to the canal.

Nothing. Just more smoke.

You can't tell from the photos, but there was smoke everywhere, it was scorching hot out and we couldn't pin point where the smoke was coming from. So weird.

We were hot and tired so we headed home.

When we got home, Dad had just got back from talking to the neighbors who said that there was a huge fire caused by lightning 6 miles away and that's where all the smoke was coming from!

It hadn't rained for, like, ever and it was so dry! So we prayed for rain and today we got some.

The end. :)
