Sample text:

A wildfire had erupted in bushland a few miles away, and we were all on edge. When a pounding knock sounded on the front door, I rushed to open it. Behind the agitated firefighter, the sky was filled with an orange glow, and thick smoke filled the air.

“The fire’s headed this way, and you need to leave now!” the man yelled at my uncle, who had appeared behind me. “Grab your kids and any pets and get out. If you have nowhere else to go, there’s an evacuation center being set up at the community hall on the other side of town.”

Aunt Beth hurried over to us, her face crumpling. “Can we pack a bag?”

“No!” The firefighter’s abrupt retort made her jump. “This area is under serious threat. We’re evacuating everyone.”

Outside, we saw a police car driving slowly by. A commanding voice sounded through a megaphone. “You must evacuate! All residents need to leave the area immediately. You must evacuate. Evacuation center at the town community hall. Everyone evacuate immediately!” The words were repeated over and over as the car patrolled the streets.

“Come on!” my uncle urged Aunt Beth. “We have to go!” He reached for the car keys that were sitting on the hallway sideboard and tugged on my younger brother’s arm, shuffling him out the door. “Tyler, move!”

My brother turned to me in horror.

“It’ll be okay, Tyler,” I tried to assure him.

“I’m sorry,” he mumbled.

I had no idea what he was apologizing for, but there was no time to question him further.

“Come on! Come on!” Uncle Vern’s panicked voice urged us. “Get in the car!”
