You know how firefighters do controlled burns to get rid of dry brush? Maybe don’t try that if you’re an amateur . . .
A guy in Tucson, Arizona wanted to get rid of some weeds around his property on Wednesday. Apparently he didn’t have a weed eater, because he decided to use a BLOWTORCH.
And it didn’t really work out for him . . . because an hour after he finished, he realized he could still smell smoke, and his HOUSE was on fire.
Apparently the fire from the weeds got to the base of his house . . . spread up one of the walls into the attic . . . and he could see flames shooting out of an air vent on the side of his house.
Firefighters managed to put it out before the entire house went up. But it sounds like he’s dealing with a decent amount of damage.
It’s not clear how much it’ll cost to fix it, but he can’t live there for now. So he and his two housemates are staying with relatives.
