A couple of things that made me realise this was happening in Russia and not in the UK were that the fire brigade had not cornered off the area and if I had wanted I could have actually walked into the fire. Another thing was that most people walking along the street at the time didn’t really seem to care and seemed more annoyed that their clothes were going to smell of smoke and that they couldn’t walk on the main road but had to walk alone the back street.
The site were the fire happened is now taped off and all that remains is some ash and some half melted snow. The book shop opposite has had to have its windows replaced and this has resulted in the area around the shop being taped off. I never thought I’d stay it but I do miss good old Health and Safety or as some call it Health and F!$*ing Safety. I am now a little scared to walk down that part of the street in case glass falls on me, more scared than when the fire was there! Strange events continue to keep happening to me in
