In my dream last night, I was keeping an eye on a friends or relatives house while they were away. I popped in every night for a few days to make sure the house was OK and to feed the dog.
The last day before the person was supposed to get home, his son had been home and left lots of dishes, so I decided to do them so that the person wouldn’t come home to a messy house. It was evening, the kitchen light was on and I was doing dishes when I started to smell smoke. I looked around and couldn’t see anything, then one of the plasterboard tiles in the ceiling (it was that type that has a grid with tiles fitted into them, and you can push them up) crashed to the kitchen table, broken in half and on fire on the back. I looked up the hole and could see flames playing around in there, looking like they were focused around the wiring for the light.
I raced to the phone and called the fire brigade, then looked around quickly. I found a fire extinguisher in the pantry and, standing on the table, tried to douse the flames with it. I got most of them but some were too high in the roofline to reach.
I made sure the dog was out and got out myself, the firefighters arrived shortly after and the house wasn’t too badly damaged. Then I had to call the person to let them know.
