As Sabrina and I stood watching the warehouse burn for several hours, the wind changed. The smoke began to drift into the parking lot. It smelled of burnt tires. I wrapped my woolen scarf around my face. The fire department chaplain brought Sabrina a wet towel, instructing her to put it over her mouth and nose. Our eyes were watering from fear and toxic fumes. The chaplain pointed out a cherry-picker truck hovering above the warehouse, and explained that firefighters couldn’t go inside, but the fire was being fought from above.
