I just called emergency - 000 in Australia.

I have never done that before. It was scary and exciting. pity it was for such a small thing.

I was going to check my PO Box and walked past a rubbish bin that was happily on fire. As I stood and watched it, I realised that hardly anyone was bothering about it. The whole of lunchtime crowd just avoided it. I was shocked that no-one was bothering to call it in!

I called the number and reported it.

What a good little samaritan am I!
