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.

The homeowner will not be charged.

:rofl::rofl:

are you all sayin that you aren't thinking about trying that sometime in your life? trust me I am a pyro-maniac and that sounds like fun to me:pop: LOL. except the house+fire=BAD part....not fun... yes Its stupid to do that...but still!!! I do think though that charging him nothing was a lil dumb, i mean i gotta say, how did he not expect somethin to go wrong with a blowtorch+20lbs. of propane+ a house right next to you??

if i ever attempt something like this, i wouldn't be suprised... kinda just nature at work if i do lol...
