Firefighters in Grimm woods

The smoke comes from somewhere deep within the house.

Filling the hallway, it flows out of the open door in slow billows and drifts across the yard, swirling and thickening until the firefighters standing there, already anonymous in air masks and helmets, become silhouettes.

The hardwood trees, bare before the cold wind, are blotted out by the smoke and take on the look of ominous, fairytale trees.
