so, this happened
Middle was looking out the window when he noticed a tree across the street was on fire. Or the wire going through the tree-leaves. Or something.
So he called the fire department and remembered that he had had the very same experience last year.
A fire. In the wires. In the tree.
(I think it's possible he has that fire-starter talent and HE'S been setting the tree on fire.)
Middle, STOP IT! Playing with fire is dangerous.
