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.

Roman candles
For those who are unaware, Roman Candles are a type of firework that shoot flaming multi-colored pellet type things up into the air, one at a time, that you're supposed to put on the ground and leave alone after lighting. That, and get very far away. But, that's not as much fun as pointing one at people and letting it go off. So, my dad had one, and he decided to aim it at a tree. It bounced off, and landed on me, and while I'm spazzing out and trying to get the flaming thing off of my clothes, he turns around, still waving it, and asks "Did that land on you?" This resulted in another one fired in my direction, and landing in my shoe. Much joy.
