    Man Snuffs Cigarette in Paint Thinner, Burns House
    AP


    DENVER, N.C. (May 15) - A man taking a break from painting burned down his house after trying to snuff out a cigarette in a bowl of paint thinner.


    Stevie Spencer had put the bowl on his coffee table before taking a smoke break about 10 p.m. Saturday.


    "I forgot paint thinner was in the bowl," Spencer said. "I thought it was water."


    The fire from the paint thinner ignited some papers, Spencer said. He got his wife out of the house, then tried to extinguish the flames with a hose. Spencer suffered minor injuries.


    Fire Chief Jay Flynn said the house was too far gone to save it when firefighters arrived.

    :rolleyes: Good thing there wasn't a gasoline pump near by or he may have grabbed the wrong hose in order to try and extinguish the fire, from the fire created from attemping to put out his cigarette. :blink:

    He also must have no sense of smell as there is a big difference between the smell of paint thinner and water. o_O

    Perhaps he had better just continue with his water colors and leave the petro based paints to the Pros. ;)
