Fire in the Head

Filed under: General — 19day @ 22:30:26

This is a journey into an event that occured at my house back home two weeks ago, but I only recently got these pictures to tell it.

We had a huge pile of wood in the firepit waiting to be burned, it had been sitting around for years, that is, it was good and dry and probably would have gone up by itself before long. We get a burn permit, and intend to burn all that dead wood.

Bad things occured to someone during this fire, just seconds before it began. Here is the aftermath (you can click all these pictures for the gorey details):

A crater where the fire pit used to be

Note that the usual bounds of the firepit are described by the bricks.

See if you can spot the alarming thing in this shot
melted gascan

The fire exinguisher was not always there,
the gas jug was originally right next to the pit, and has lost its deposit
another shot of the pit

The desolation of Smaug
scorched earth

The firestarter suffered a similar fate as the weeds

The poor fire starter here won’t be named, since using gasoline, without letting the vapours dissapate, on 2 year old bone dry wood, is perhaps not the best thing to do. 1st and 2nd degree burns later, they are doing fairly well. The pit has started to recover, but perhaps next time a couple balls of paper would do.

At least they remembered to stop, drop, and roll.

  1. You can tell me who the firestarter is, can’t you? Glad to hear the person in question isn’t seriously hurt.
