4. quote

4.1. And the voices wailed Fire, fire, fire, run, run like a tragic nursery rhyme, a dozen voices, high, low, like children dying in a forest, alone, alone

4.1.1. This quote is important because it shows how a person from the 1950's would think a fire system for the future would be. Instead of voices we have a box on the wall that screams at you every time you put a piece of bread in the toaster. Instead of a sprinkler and little mice with hoses we have just sprinklers. It's funny to think how close Bradbury got to the real thing. The best idea is defiantly the mice with squrit guns though.
