FIREPLACE

 

OUR HOUSE ON WEST DRIVE IN WEST PALM BEACH HAD A FIREPLACE†† WE USED IT. IT KELP OUR ELECTRIC BILL DOWN AND PEGGY LOVED A FIRE IN THE FIREPLACE

 

I WOULD PUT TWIGS ON THE LOGS††††† SPRAY LIGHTER FLUID ON IT, THE FIRE WOULD START EASY.

 

I CAME HOME ONE NIGHT AND PEGGY ASKED ME TO START THE FIREPLACE.I TOSSED SOME TWIGS ON THE LOGS AND SPRAYED THE LIGHTER FLUID ON IT.

 

ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE

 

THE FIREPLACE EXPLODED FIRE RUN UP THE STREAM TOWARD THE CAN OF LIGHTER FLUID.†† I DROPPED THE CAN SPILLING FLUID ALL OVER MY POLYESTER PANTS AND THE COUCH AND CARPET.††††† THE LIVING ROOM AND ME WAS IN FLAMES†††††††††† I YELLED AT PEGGY TO GRAB THE FIRE Extinguisher ††SHE RUN AND GOT IT BUT NOT KNOWING HOW TO USE IT†† HANDED IT TO ME†† THAT NOW HAD PANTS MELTING TO HIS LEGS AND FIRE EVERYWHERE††††††† I POPPED THE PIN AND SPRAYED ME PUTTING OUT THE FIRE ON ME††† I THEN PUT OUT THE REST OF THE FIRE.††† ALL WE HAD WAS BURNS ON ME AND A BIG MESS IN THE LIVING ROOM

 

PEGGY HAD BEEN TRYING TO START THE FIRE BEFORE I GOT HOME BUT DIDNíT TELL ME

 

I NEVER USED LIGHTER FLUID AGAIN
