staying awake

About 4 o’clock last night/this morning we were woken by the sound of sirens and amplified voices. It seemed that there was a fire in an apartment building along the block, and it was quite noisy. I don’t think it was too bad as I haven’t found anything in the papers about it, but if it was inconvenient and unpleasant for us, it must have been way worse for the people who live in the building. Fortunately Toby didn’t wake up – in fact he went to sleep before 10 last night and was still asleep when I left the house at 7:50 this morning.
