What a crazy summer this is.
Around midnight, a fire broke out in the attic of the building that's across the children's playground from us. Two firetrucks were in our backyard, and the third one was on Khreshchatyk - they were pumping water all the way from there. The flames were pretty huge for a while (though there was no stench at all), and it took them way over an hour to extinguish the fire. Now it's the water on Khreshchatyk that they can't tame - must be their third hour of trying to, in vain.
God bless the firefighters: so brave, climbing those ladders with all that equipment on them. It was really scary to watch them.
All in all, it was totally wild, but I started taking pictures only by the end of it, and even though I do have some videos of the flames, I'm too lazy to upload them now...
