This is a question Have you ever started a fire?

I went to sleep with candles burning - woke up to a circle of flame on the rug. Thought, "Tits. Better put the rug in the bath and turn the taps on." TIP: Don't put a burning rug into a fibre glass bath. I caused about £5000 of damage to the house and was coughing up smoky black phlegm for a few weeks. Can you beat that?

Never mine, but I always seem to be around.
Back in High School science class our teacher would often leave the class alone for 10-20 minutes. So my classmates in the back would often get bored. One day they happened to have a bottle of liquid cement (it was a very flammable kind of glue) anyways they decided it would be fun to light it on fire. The thing that they realized after they lit the thing on fire was that the bottle for the liquid cement was made out of plastic, not glass. So the glue on fire quickly melted the plastic bottle which caused the glue to spill out onto the table and cover their books in flaming glue. The teacher finally ran back into the room and grabbed a fire extinguisher and stopped the fire. But not before the table and books had been destroyed.

Another story but from my friend. She was driving her Lotta down the road and she noticed that it was starting to smoke, so she thought that it maybe was just overheating so she pulled into the nearest gas station to phone her Dad to come and fix her car. So she parked her car and went into the gas station and got a drink and tried phoning her dad. When she came back out she saw that there was a lot of smoke coming out from her car and there was also flames now coming out. Soon her car was engulfed in flames. The gas station was surrounded by a dry field of grass. So the flames from her car started the field on fire. The gas station that she was at was located pretty far from any fire station, so by the time that the firemen got there her car was just smoldering. It had pretty much melted and the field was still on fire. The firemen covered the entire gas station in white foam and many of the people who had been at the gas station questioned my friend “Why would you park a car that is on fire at gas station?”
