I tried to get the fireplace burning.

It was cold in the home when I got home from labor yeahterday.

  • Instead of waiting for my partner to get home, I thought I would help him out and start the fire for him.

I should have never tried to get the fireplace burning. I wasn’t sure what I did wrong, although I had smoke billowing into the home office. I must have had the entire neighborhood in a panic, because several of my neighbors were resting outside and the firetruck had arrived. They were getting out of the truck and hooking up hoses while I was opening windows. I looked outside and then walked out. I called to the firefighter and asked him if there was a fire somewhere. She saw how calm I was and said someone had called in a fire at this address. I looked at the smoke coming out of the windows and I was embarrassed. I told him I tried to light the fireplace, and I didn’t know what I had done wrong. The fire wasn’t burning, and the smoke was pouring into the home instead of up the chimney. She made a hand motion to the guys, and they started packing things up. She said this was a first and followed me into the house. Within minutes, she had the fireplace burning, and the smoke was no longer coming into the house. The firefighter was leaving just as my partner walked in. She said she would love to hear the story, despite the fact that she had to go to the lavatory first. I could hear him laughing as she ran up the steps.
