This is a question Fire!

We were all in my aunt's kitchen at the back of her huge rambling Victorian house. I was only small and had wandered off to go to the loo, but given up after finding the hall full of smoke. "That was quick," my mum said after a few minutes. "Yes - it's all smoky," I replied.

I've never seen adults move so fast.

So, like my cousin who'd managed to set fire to the roof, tell us your fire stories.

Childish ant incineration
Heres a lesson for all the kids out there - what you can do with a magnifying glass you can also do with a 30" parabolic mirror (polished smoother than a smooth thing as it was the main reflector from a silicon chip fabrication exposure unit) On a hot day with said big mirror you can set fire to things very quickly (and crack brickwork if you are not careful where you point it)
