Fire in the hole!

A brief encounter from last night. I am driving to a work colleague called Andy to visit him at his house. On the way I turn a corner in my car and see a badly parked lorry that's almost blocking the road, I just manage to get past moaning and cursing as I squeeze by.
Arriving at Andy's house he informs me that he can smell burning from the back room. I investigate by opening a small hatch in the floor. As I do this flames leap up out of the floor. The walls of this room suddenly have lots of pairs of eyes embedded into the wallpaper. They blink at the flames and I spring into action by producing a large hose that shoots liquid foam into the fiery hollow.
The fire is extinguished and Andy is very grateful.
