Fire! Fire!

A report has just come in of a fire at the house of Francis Maude the Cabinet Office minister, witnesses said it was like a bomb going of, another stated it looked like an oil refinery ablaze.

Fifty fire appliances have attended the scene which has destroyed a small forest and half the county.

A spokes person for the Fire Brigade said that in a time of shortage and drought it was a major issue whether to use valuable water in the current climatic and political conditions. It was also pointed out that the type of fire could only be caused by the illegal storage of highly flammable material.

A spokes person for the Insurance company said, in view of the fact he had been storing large amounts of petrol in his basement his policy was nul and void.

A large crowd gathered to watch the house burn to a small pile of ashes on which people were seen to be warming pasties.

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
