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?

I remember
when I was about 9 I started a fire in the house with some of those dried out flower thingys that were big in the 70's. I got up early and I was playing with matches near the fireplace. I heard my mother coming so I quickly put the match into the container with the dried out flowers.

It started to roar. Needless to say her boyfriend wasn't happy. But I was 9 and not his son, what was he gonna do?

not a fire but an interesting point: I also started a chemical burn on nylon fibre carpeting once by trying to clean a rather LARGE spill of super glue with Hydrogen Peroxide. There is now a permanent circular piece of plastic embedded in the carpet.
