Smelly shit sparks blaze

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A MAN ac­ci­den­tally burned his boat down after light­ing a can­dle to cover up his smelly dump.

Reports state that the man told fire­fight­ers that he lit the can­dle in the bath­room be­cause he “didn’t want it to smell bad” after he used it.

But the can­dles fell over, lead­ing to the car­peted floor catch­ing light al­most in­stantly.

The fire spread to a neigh­bour­ing boat and sunk both of them, with two other boats be­ing left with burn marks.

A wit­ness said: “The blaze was any­where be­tween 100 to 150 feet in the air at one time.

“We heard a rather large ex­plo­sion, prob­a­bly ei­ther the fuel tank or the gas in one of the ves­sels ig­nited and ex­ploded.”

Hol­ly­wood Fire Res­cue Chief Chris Del Campo said that 15 fire­fight­ers had to con­tain the blaze.
