I wake up on a Saturday morning to see my room filled with smoke.
I get out of bed and dash to the living room. I realised that the smoke alarm was beeping for a while now. I the noticed the fire extinguisher on the wall. There was one small problem it was in a glass box, there was a key placed in a small section in the box covered with glass you are supposed to smash. I smash it glass hits my eye. I retreat, called 000 they came. By the time they came it burned my whole garden down.

Oh my! This feels like the start of a movie. Great writing!
It would be frightening to wake to a smoke filled room but it seems you were a person of action. You tried to grab a fire extinguisher but, that failing, you knew to call 000.
