They were picnicking with family in the back yard when they heard sirens at the neighbors; they went immediately to see if they could be of assistance but were soon very embarrassed.

Sirens: emergency vehicle sirens? Smoke alarm? Burglar alarm? Toy siren? Sirens on the TV? Or other entertainment? Did they mistake one type of sirens for another? Was there an emergency? Was anyone else embarrassed?

emergency vehicle: police? fire truck? ambulance? relevant?
was the neighbor [HAM? HAF?] in distress? injured? in a compromising situation [e.g., trapped naked on the roof...yet somehow, not embarrassed...]?
emergency: fire? domestic disturbance?
animals involved? other people?

was something on fire at the neighbor's?
the house? a vehicle? something in the landscape? the barbecue? an appliance? was there actually a fire, or merely smoke?
if a fire, was the combusting item in actual peril of destruction/damage?
had the neighbor called the fire truck? is that relevant?
oh -- I assume the title's relevant [okay: is it?]
if so, related to technology? computers? internet? cell phone or other telecommunications?
were the HAM/HAF neighbors at home? relevant?

was the fire inside the house? outside?
time of year relevant?
the neighbor called the fire truck?
fire: electrical? "spontaneous combustion"? intentional, but out of control?
I realize my Q about relevant title and following queries was due to seeing "new message" while fabricating my post... and had thought that was the title... I think that's pretty funny, and surely makes me feel like a noob. Uh, a potential puzzle there? I recall meta-LTPF puzzles before...

Did the embarassment have more to do with leaving their back yard, rather than going to the neighbors?

were the picnickers the only embarrassed ones? [seems so...]
And although they weren't drunk, stoned, naked, and otherwise on fire, we should still be interested in your puzzle?

Was it the smell of the toasted marshmallows that caused the neighbours to alert the fire department?

Did the party people cause the neighbors' fire?
Would the party house people be legally liable for damages? Did the fire that was roasting the marshmallows somehow set the neighbors' house on fire?

Fireworks involved?

did they rush round to the front with their marshmallows in their hands so it looked as if they were toasting them on the house fire?

****************************************SPOILER********************************************
imagine their embarrassment as they walked up to their neighbors and realized they forgot to leave their roasting sticks at home. And there they stood with marshmallows on sticks at the neighbors house fire?

No Deholmes, the credit all goes to Shez. My questions were fairly ordinary.
