cut (fast english)


current time:

The workers cut down the trees as fast as they could. These workers were very strong and fit, and though the work was hard, they were cut out for this work. They were deep in the forest, cutting trees when they got a call on the radio. They were told to stop cutting and leave as fast as they could. A forest fire had started and if they did not leave soon, they would be cut off from the main road. If they were caught by the fire they would surely die because the fire would cut off their supply of air, as well as cutting off any route for supplies or water for them. They moved quickly and got out just in time as the fire swept down on the road they had just driven over to get out.
