Firefighters save a man - level 2
A man from China tried to kill himself. He released gas from a tank in a basement. When firefighters arrived, he threatened to light it.
The firefighters broke into the basement. They found the tank already on fire. They immediately carried it out of the building onto an empty lawn. It was a very dangerous situation.
Luckily, the man hurt nobody. The arsonist remains under arrest by police.
Difficult words: tank (a container which has gas inside), threaten (to say that you will do something bad), arsonist (somebody who illegally sets things on fire).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
