Yesterday I was going up my block on Jerome Ave. to get some pizza and across the street the Spanish restaurant named Caridad was on fire. There were a lot of fire trucks and one police car. I went across the street and asked my friends what happened, and they said a lightning bolt went through the restaurant. The owner was outside with the other people that worked there. The smoke coming out of the restaurant smelled very strong. After I stood there for a while I went back to my building and ate my pizza.
