Man Ignites Home While Melting Snow

By Wyatt Earp | December 24, 2008


Oh yeah, I forgot the best part . . . he was using a BLOWTORCH!

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. – Fire officials in New Bedford, Mass., say a man using a blowtorch to melt ice on his back porch ended up setting his house on fire, causing up to $30,000 in damage.

Fire Capt. Scott Kruger tells The Standard-Times of New Bedford that no on was injured during Monday’s incident at the three-story home.

Kruger says the man was using a torch hooked up to a 20-pound propane cylinder. He got too close to the building’s wood frame and ignited the vinyl siding. The fire quickly spread into the building’s second- and third-floor apartments.

It took 25 firefighters to subdue the blaze that damaged bedrooms in the upstairs units, and caused damage to the structure and wiring. ()

Okay everyone, sing it with me . . .

Why am I not surprised that this happened in Massachusetts? The guy probably votes for Ted Kennedy and John Kerry every year. Idiot.

    And now he’s suing the blowtorch company.

    He might as well remove his penis and testicles right now, his wife will forever be in charge after this blunder.
    In fact, she’s probably reducing his sex life to scheduled appointments, at her convenience, not his. In pencil, not ink.

    DL474 - Sounds like my house . . . Heh. The wife isn’t reading this behind my shoulder, is she?

    Did my post get caught up in something?

    Merely that it is a wonderful picture with the whole fire brigade team posing in front of the fire!

    (All right, I know it’s not true but it’s still a wonderful picture!)

    DL474 - Right here! (Raises hand.)

    Alan B - An absolute riot! I think it was taken in Philadelphia. (Ducks Captain America’s flying shoe.)
