Yes, it’s another contest. I can’t help myself, I love ’em. This one is exceptionally challenging as it can only be 50 words or less. The competition is tough. Here’s the link to the rules and the other stories.

Bright red engine, VROOM, VROOM, VROOM.
Fire burning – ZOOM-ZOOM-ZOOM!
Start the siren. Honk the horn.
Engine works from night till morn.
Flames flare up in fields and trees.
Make room for Red Engine, please.
Splash and spray. The flames go down.
Engine saves his little town.
