    The fire fighters used a hose to spray jets of water on the fire.

    The fire fighters used a hose to spray jets of water on the fire.

    Are the words in bold correct? If not, what words should I use?

    Thanks.

    Nor does he/she appear to be in Malaysia as the member profile states.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Hello.

    Honestly, I didn't translate it. Can you render your words?

    upd: Probably, it means that you're surprised.

    Thanks.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Yes, surprised or astounded. He was making a joke from the word "flabbergasted".
