I listened to the beeping of the alarm and wondered why my housemate was not turning off his alarm clock. I got up and went to the hall and the sound became louder. Then I realized it was in the kitchen and the oatmeal I was cooking had been left on high heat and was burning. I was hearing the smoke alarm.
Quickly I opened the door, and turned on the fan and took off the pan. There wasn't a fire but the room was filled with smoke. UMMM, I guess I have to be more careful.
