Fire in the hole!!

In the middle of the night, about 3 AM, me and Jeremy were both woken up by this loud pop sound and then a roaring sound.  We looked at each other and asked what it was.  I got up to look out the window.  As i was walking to the window and lifting the blinds my first thought was "tornado?!".  At first all i saw was what looked like paper and this haze blowing around.  I then saw this big orange glow to my left and noticed the dumpster was on fire.  It was a pretty big fire too. I told Jeremy and we went out on the balcony.  I guess some other people heard it too because the people above us were outside and i believe called the police.  A few minutes later someone went out and tried to put it out with a fire extinguisher.  Didn't do too much except smoke the place up and might have put the air conditioners that were on fire out. Then the fire truck showed and did their thing.  Ziva wasn't in the least bit interested.  Jeremy said that the other week when he was leaving for work he noticed another dumpster had been on fire.  He said it was still smoking and hot.  I don't know if it was as bad or if we just didn't know about it.  I'm not even sure how they are catching fire.  Maybe some punk kids or someone is throwing their cigarette butts off their balcony and it lands on it?   Who knows.   We've had some action around here lately.  Over the weekend 5 cars were broken into with broken windows in one night...all next to each other.  And of course the fire that went down on Valentines Day

there were some wooden pallets by the dumpster that i kinda wanted to do something with them...
jeremy said "there goes your pallets"

fire extinguisher smoke...our place still smells a little smoky.
