Heard the sirens and went back to sleep. Woke to a TV news(?) chopper hovering in the area around 6am and with that I was up for the day.

[Aside from my petty complaints, I'm glad that the occupants were able to get out safely.]

I live one street over and I was woken up by the sound of a fire engine screaming up my street around 4:12 this morning; the helicopters came around 6am.
