Léa and Tom stay at home while their father goes shopping. For their four o’clock snack, all they can find in the house is some sliced bread to toast. So in the meantime, they play a little, the toast bursts into flames and sets their flat on… Read more fire! They have been taught what to do, so Lea and Tom don’t panic – while Lea places a damp cloth along the bottom edge of the door, Tom calls the fire brigade. Then they take refuge on the balcony.
