The fire-fighters stand and watch for the first time in days.
---------------
What is the meaning of 'in days'? what other expressions can use instead of 'in days'? Thank you.

  • English -

    It sounds as if the firefighters had been working for many days, fighting a particularly bad fire ... and after all those days, are finally able to relax a bit and just watch.

    The phrase "in days" implies they've been working hard for several previous days.
