My friend was supposed to interview with my current roommates yesterday evening as to him potentially replacing me on the lease. Right when he came to visit us, he heard gunshots on the nearest street corner and called 911. The police got there promptly. One of my roommates put a police scanner on and we listened to it until eventually the all clear was called (we think the gun was just fired in the air and nobody was injured). My friend's visit became just a hanging out session because at that point no one was feeling like talking roommate specifics.
Two hours later we were still in the living room watching dumb YouTube videos when my roommate noticed there was a fire in the kitchen. Apparently some faulty wiring in the fridge ignited the paper bag full of rags we keep next to it. Fortunately my roommate acted quickly with the fire extinguisher, but there were still embers left after the extinguisher was exhausted. The fire department got there promptly, nobody was hurt, and nothing major was damaged as far as we can tell.
Pretty stressful for everyone involved, though, especially my friend who was involved in two urgent 911 calls in the span of 3 hours.
