A Visit from the Fire Department

Yesterday morning the kids and I were playing outside early (7:15-ish) and I decided to build a fire in our firepit. Around 8:45 I heard and then saw a fire truck coming down our street and as they approached our house I saw them point. I went to the front yard to see what was going on and they said someone had called and complained. I told them that I had a fire in our firepit. The lead guy said “The only problem I see is that you don’t have a screen covering it.” I said “Yes, I do.” He looked closer and agreed. He also noticed that I had a hose handy, in case things got out of hand. He said that if someone called and complained again then I would have to put it out.

Now I just need to figure out who called and complained. I have a few suspects in mind.
