The Day the Fridge Caught on Fire

Only a couple of days ago the weirdest thing happened. Me and my cousin were watching detective conan when my sister yelled for our help from the kitchen. We ran out because my sister only ever calls if it's an absolute emergency. The whole kitchen was full of smoke and she was trying to set out a fire behind the fridge. Thank goodness it wasn't a big fire, but because she couldn't get the fire extinguisher to work i called the fire department. I felt somewhat safer 'cause they answered the call right away. The fire went out but we no longer owned a fridge. But fortunately for us we have generous upstairs neighbors who lent us their fridge downstairs.
Well anyway my sister decided she wanted our old fridge out right away so we had to drag it out to the front which involved a lot of freaking out. Then she made sure no cars were coming and pushed it down the stairs nearly wrecking our garden display.
Anyway our next upstairs neighbors informed us we had to take off the doors so that people wouldn't suffocate. I asked my sister why someone would climb in our fridge. The doors came off after some more freaking out and a hurt thumb.
After only an hour the scrap metals guys came and carted it off like it was a well kept secret of the universe. That was funny because our upstairs neighbor predicted they'd come and take the fridge before nightfall.
