It was a bit fucked up. We woke up and the house was on on fire. There was a wall of smoke on the stairs, couldn't see, couldn't breathe, just had to run through it and get out of the house. I went the wrong way because I'm new to the house, and almost walked right into the centre of it.

The fire brigade were class though, they turned up quick and stopped it being a lot worse.

And as well right Handsworth gets a bad name but blacks, asians, took us in, gave us biscuits, tea, clothes, shoes. Mutual aid innit

But aye was a bit life changing tbf. Could have been so much worse. You'll find me less of a cunt on here

My gfs parents house. We've lost loads tbf. The council are going to gut the house and refurb it all and we're going to stay in temporary accommodation til then. The front room is the worst. The fire was so hot it melted the glass in the windows. When we saw the smoke on the stairs we thought that was it. We thought we were walking into the room the fire was in and we were done for.

I've learned one thing and it's that dithering and faff arsing kills. You have to be decisive and don't fuck about or else you're dead. Because I reckon when a fire is rocking like that you have 30 seconds to a min before you're dead. It's brutal, there's literally no air.

The firemen said not many people survive fires when all the peole are asleep, and when they start downstairs, and when you have no fucking firealarms or fire extinguishers, and loads of shite in your house that's perfect for burning

Lucky as fuck

No fire alarms?

Someone should cop an earful for that... not clever, that...
