Kampung on fire

There's a kampung house on fire near my apartment just now. I witnessed it from the balcony at fifth floor of my apartment. Frankly speaking, it's the first time I see such huge fire with so much smoke rising to the atmosphere. I could see nearby residents quickly pack up their things and run. Then I heard sirens from fire engines arriving to put out the fire. In just few minutes, the fire engulfed three kampung houses and left only dark ashes. My deepest sympathy to the victims.
