A few years ago here in OK some guy burnt his home down while cleaning some car parts with gasoline on top of the kitchen range.
At some point in the cleaning process he decided to turn on one of the burners to heat up something for lunch. Luckily he escaped with minor burns.
Once was bad enough but about a year later some other guy did the same thing.
Another odd one was a lady who was living in a 3 BR brick rental home. She decided to set off quite a few bug bombs and left the house for the afternoon while they did their job.
Per the usual she did not read the explicit warnings about turning off gas pilot lights, clock radios, fans, the central heat and air unit, etc.
The ensuing explosion when the A/C kicked on almost wiped the house out. All of the windows and front door was blown out, a lot of sheetrock and kitchen cabinetry was blown loose and left hanging, and the 16’ overhead garage door was blown clean off of its tracks and thrown halfway down the drive.
No word on whether her landlord renewed the lease…
