So our neighbours just tried to burn our houses down. The only reason our house is still standing is because a roving fire engine saw the plumes of smoke from across the suburb and were here before I could log a 000 call. They, the neighbours, piled their garbage and garden cuttings up against the fence bonfire style, right next to Kelly’s bedroom, doused it in lighter fluid and set it alight. The flames were higher than our double story house. We even had spectators!
The fire brigade and ambos called the police, and the police told us to take it to our local Council, social media or the newspapers. I may have actually yelled at a police officer this afternoon.
There is nothing anyone can do unless a wealthy patron wants to buy us out. Excuse me while I sit and cry. It’s all I can do.
