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 hate things which start "when I was at Uni..." - but...
when I was at Uni, a girl sharing a flat with my girlfriend managed to set fire to a bath full of water. She was trying to have a nice relaxing night in with candles and smelly stuff and bath oil and bubbles and things of that nature. She leaves bathroom, illuminated as it is in subtle candle light, to apply face mask. While she is away, a candel sets alight to the plastic shower curtain which begins to drip flaming globs of plastic onto the bath and carpet. The bath starts to melt and then burn, then sets alight. She returns to the bathroom and finds it full of black smoke and fire. The fire chaps came and put it out (had a little chuckle at girl in face mask) and everything was good. But, do you know, to this day, she still won't take a bath*

Are you kidding?
I was a pyromaniac when I was a kid. The dancing flame in the dark, the smell of smoke... I always had an excuse to causa fire at home, or outside. "Hey, what are we gonna do with all those newspapers?" "Look, a roach! Let´s see what will happen if we set it on fire!" "Hmmm... alcohol and matches". Thanks to that, now I know what is being burned by the various smells of smoke.
