When I got home last night I was feeling tired so I decided to stay in. While I was watching TV I heard an explosion nearby. I ran out to see what happened/had happened/was happening. As soon as I got outside, I saw a lot of smoke coming from a neighbour’s garden. I went round to see if he was alright and luckily he was fine. Apparently, he’s been burning some rubbish and he hadn’t realized that there was an aerosol can in one of the bags. Of course, when it hit the fire, it exploded.
