Write a feature story of between 500 and 580 words. The fire’s cause has not been determined, but the fire chief’s comments are worth including. Keep in mind that news of the fire has been reported. Your story, however, will provide dramatic and important details.
Use direct quotes or paraphrases as you deem appropriate. Your story should have a delayed lead, which may report new facts about the fire. Or you may opt to focus on one or more of the survivors. By no means should you use a news lead.
