223 False Alarm

Loud noises are nothing new to life on an army post.
I didn't think much of the humming motor outside until I realized that it had been going for more than a half hour. I finally peeked outside and saw this:
There were a few firefighters walking around without a sense of urgency, so I didn't think it was anything big. I did see a puff of smoke behind the black car on the right. I worried because that family has been gone for months and I thought something had happened to the house. 
I finally went outside to investigate and saw that a new neighbor was standing on her porch watching so I introduced myself. She explained that they were training in an empty house.
Easy enough.
I'm so glad it wasn't anything bad, and I'm glad that I got to meet a new neighbor!
