At the station, sirens sound.
Corazones start to pound.
"House fire " says el capitan.
" Fuego Get your helmets on "

So begins a rollicking race to save a burning casa from the roaring flames-and these bomberos are up to the task, with hoses ready and sirens blaring. Spanish words sprinkled throughout the lively text-plus a glossary at the end-will enrich young readers as they cheer for the firefighters to save the day.
